Two terrorists and a soldier were killed in an encounter, which took place in Jammu and Kashmir’s Bandipora district. The operation/encounter occurred in the Panar forest region in Bandipora. As the reports suggest, the army had launched a search operation in the area, after a soldier was killed by the terrorists this week. The operation is still in the process. The deceased soldier was shot, and immediately taken to the hospital for treatment on his injuries, but the doctor’s couldn’t treat him in time, and he martyred. The army has been fighting the terrorists for six days, in an attempts to cleanse them from the place.
The forces also encountered, and exchanged gunfight with the terrorists in Raynar forests, which is next to Panar forest. The army has been receiving help and reinforcement to continue their attack on the terrorists, and the conflict has now lengthened into six days of violence from both sides.
The army is trying to find the terrorists who might be hiding in the forest. This instance of violence is again a reaction to the army’s reluctance for violence in the holy month of Ramadan, but it seems that the terrorists don’t care about the lives of others, and have been relentless in their attacks everyday since the eve began. The forces have retreated for the span of time while the Muslim population holds fast until the eve of Eid tomorrow. They have only launched operations where it is necessary to combat the terrorist, lest they become violent for the population. This has harm to the forces as well, as can be seen by the death of the soldier, but has done little to curb the terrorists, who have been carrying out attacks. The violence can only be tackled when the army has more control over the areas.
