In three separate encounters in the Valley, four militants were killed

In the last 24 hours, four militants have been killed in three separate gunfights in the Kashmir Valley, according to police. Two militants were killed in south Kashmir, including one from Pakistan, while the other two were killed in north and central Kashmir.

According to police, the slain militants were members of the Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) and The Resistance Front (TRF), which is a front for the Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT).

According to police, a joint team of police, Army, and paramilitary forces cordoned off Chwakalan village in Pulwama, south Kashmir, on Friday night after receiving specific information about the presence of militants in the village. The militants were said to be hiding in a local seminary. “As the search party approached local Darul Uloom, terrorists concealed inside opened fire indiscriminately on the search party, injuring one civilian, Zahoor Ahmad Shergojri,” police said in a statement. “The joint party retaliated against the fire, resulting in a fight.” The operation was carried out with all due precautions and deliberations, keeping the institution’s sanctity in mind.”

The slain militants were identified as Pakistan’s Kamal Bhai and Pulwama’s Aqib Mushtaq by police. According to police, both of them were members of Jaish-e-Mohammad. The Pakistani militant had also been active in the Valley for more than three years, according to them.

Two more gunfights broke out hours after the first in Pulwama, in central Kashmir’s Ganderbal and north Kashmir’s Handwara. After receiving information about the presence of militants in these villages, police said a joint team of forces cordoned off Serch village in Ganderbal and the Rajwar area of Handwara.

The militants killed in these three encounters were found with two AK-56 rifles, an AK short barrel rifle, a pistol, and a grenade, according to police.Meanwhile, according to PTI, Kashmir IGP Vijay Kumar said on Saturday that panches and sarpanches were easy targets for militants because 90% of them lacked personal security officers. According to Kumar, police are taking precautions to ensure their safety. His comments came a day after a sarpanch was killed by militants in Adoura, Kulgam district, in south Kashmir. This was the Union Territory’s third assassination of a local elected official this month.
