Written by Abhishek Rana

Two terrorists were neutralized, and one Indian army Jawan was left injured in a gunfight that ensued in the Shopian district of Jammu and Kashmir. However, one terrorist from the group escaped the assault and is still on lose; the forces are looking for him and he’ll be neutralized as soon as he’s caught. Inspector general of police, Muneer said, “Bodies of two terrorists recovered but third one is still alive and is present in a house, he started firing again a few minutes back.” The assault began when gunfight broke out in Wanpora region  of South Kashmir’s Shopian last night.

The forces, 44RR and SOG had begun a cordon-and- search operation at Batmuraan region, as they were following specific information that there were terrorists lurking in the area somewhere. However, the forces were looking around, investigating the place when the terrorists opened fire on them and were then overwhelmed instead.

This is another successful attempt from the forces to neutralize the terrorists that have been making nuisance and endangering the lives of the residents. The terrorist group responsible for the terrorists has not been identified, but it seems that they were from some or other, or the terrorist group, Jaish.

Jammu and Kashmir has been mired by the influence of militants, who have been disrupting the peace and quite of the valley for a long time. This year, though, the army forces have succeeded in purging the terrorists by neutralizing them, for now, the army has been able to kill over 200 militants. There have been gunfight assaults over in Bandipora, Handwara and other regions, where the Terrorists were either hiding  or looking to cause harm to people.
