The encounter began at night, in the Unisoo, in Handwara, raged till morning, and resulted in the death of five terrorists, who were probably belonging to the terrorist group LeT (Lashkar-e-Taiba). The two other terrorists in Bomai. As tweeted by the DGP Shesh Paul Vaid, the forces was working all the way through the night, and a combination of RR, CRPF and Jammu and Kashmir police were able to put the terrorists to the grave.

The terrorists were trying to move into the village after the snowfall, so that their path could be clear, but someone then tipped the forces about their presence, and the forces were able to block the path of the terrorists and engage in an encounter, that unfortunately resulted in the death of a civilian.

Following the assault and neutralization of the three terrorists, the internet services in Sopore, Baramulla, Handwara and Kupawara have been suspended. The unfortunate death of the female civilian reportedly happened because the terrorists had taken over a house, and to kill them off, the forces couldn’t save her in time and she died inn ensuing crossfire.

The Indian forces have been able to neutralize over 200 terrorists in the Jammu and Kashmir valley, bringing the tally to 208, which is an achievement for them and their efforts to bring down the forces that try to cause havoc and destruction on the land of India and hurt its citizens.
