“We have killed three terrorists in the gunfight, which has ended. One soldier was also killed in action,” Army spokesperson in Jammu region Lieutenant Colonel Devender Anand told news agency Press Trust of India.

“Two policemen were injured in the rescue operation,” Jammu Inspector General of Police Mukesh Singh told news agency ANI. This was the first of two encounters and one grenade attack that were reported from Jammu and Kashmir this morning.

The encounter in Batote in Ramban district started around 12:30 pm when the three terrorists tried to stop a passenger bus on the Jammu-Srinagar highway.

Sources said the bus driver on seeing the terrorists, who came wearing Indian army dress sped away after finding something suspicious. The driver informed the police after which the security forces surrounded the area and launched a search operation.

Heavy rain in the area made the operation challenging, the sources said, adding the three terrorists entered a house and took hostages. They fired at the security forces and threw grenades before entering the house.

The security forces progressed with extreme prudence to avoid collateral damage before the hostage was rescued, the sources said. The terrorists were told to surrender before they were shot dead, sources said.

The second encounter broke out in the upper reaches of Ganderbal, bordering Gurez, which is near the Line of Control (LoC). A terrorist was shot dead, the Army’s Northern Command tweeted.

It is suspected the terrorist who was shot dead could be part of a larger group that infiltrated into India from Gurez side since it’s near the LoC.

The third incident was reported from Srinagar, where terrorists threw a grenade at a sparsely populated neighbourhood. No one was injured in the attack. There were few people on the road as restrictions were back in the area, sources said. The police are trying to find out the target of the grenade attack as the area was mostly deserted, sources said.
