2 Soldiers Killed In Action, 4 Terrorists Shot Dead In Jammu And Kashmir’s Kulgam

Two soldiers were killed in action today in separate encounters with terrorists in Jammu and Kashmir’s Kulgam district. Four terrorists were subsequently gunned down by the forces, while four others are believed to be hiding.

The back-to-back encounters began after security forces launched anti-terrorist operations based on specific information about the presence of terrorists at two separate places in the district.

At Modergam village, one soldier was killed after troops came under heavy terrorist fire during a massive assault by joint forces of the CRPF, Army, and local police on a target house where at least two terrorists are believed to be trapped.

The situation escalated quickly as the forces descended upon the village, swiftly establishing a cordon to trap the terrorists. In the initial gunfire, a soldier sustained injuries and later died during treatment.

In another encounter in Kulgam’s Frisal area, drone footage showed the bodies of four terrorists killed in a fierce gun battle. One army soldier was killed in action and another was injured.

The bodies of terrorists could not be retrieved amid heavy fire coming from the target site. Two more terrorists are present at the encounter site, they suspect.

The region has recently seen a surge in terrorist activities, with several encounters reported across different districts of Jammu and Kashmir. Just last month, security forces successfully neutralized three terrorists in the Gandoh area of district Doda.
