Earlier today, 3 terrorists were neutralised by the Armed Forces in Dragad Sugan area of J&K’s Shopian. Encounter is currently underway and top commanders of Lashkar-e-Toiba and Jaish-e-Muhammad are believed to be trapped in the region. Cordon and search operation was initiated by the paramilitary forces after the police received a tip-off about terrorists’ whereabouts. As the forces carried out the search operations, terrorists started firing at them, leading to the encounter.
Earlier in February this year, Jaish-e-Muhammad trained Kashmiri terrorist carried out a suicide attack on CRPF convoy near Pulwama killing 40 CRPF personnel. The situation between India and Pakistan then quickly escalated as India carried out retaliatory attacks against the Pak based JeM camp in Balakot and Pakistan sending its fleet of F-16s and JF-17s, in a failed bid to attack India’s military installations. Pakistan has since been pleading India to deescalate the tensions on the border but India has so far turned a blind eye to their repeated entreaties stating that Pakistan should act against the terrorists before initiation of any meaningful dialogue between the two countries.
