Kupwara encounter: 4 terrorists killed,1 apprehended


kashmirIn an ongoing encounter near the Line of Control (LoC) in Kupwara district of Jammu and Kashmir (J&K), four Pakistan terrorists were killed and one was caught alive by the Indian security forces on July 26.

As told by an officer, the operation, which was still underway, took place in the Nowgam sector and all the terrorists were foreign nationals.

As the operation was still going on, it would be premature to say whether it was an infiltration bid or not, said the official.

One of the terrorists has been caught alive and we expect some vital information from him, he added.

Congratulating the security forces, Minister of State for Home Kiren Rijiju said, “It’s a big achievement to catch a terrorist alive. The truth of Pakistan will come to the fore.”
