New Delhi: This morning three Jaish-e-Mohammed terrorists were killed in an encounter in Jammu and Kashmir's Pulwama. One security force personnel was injured in the encounter. The operation was launched by the army, the police ad the CRPF in a village in Pulwama.
The official sources on Monday said three heavily armed Pakistani terrorists were killed as the army foiled a major infiltration attempt along the Line of Control in the Nowshera sector of Jammu and Kashmir's Rajouri district.
Last week, the security forces prevented a massive car bomb that had the same chilling activities with last year's terror attack in Pulwama when over 40 soldiers were killed as a suicide bomber drove a car full of explosives into a CRPF convoy.
Based on intelligence inputs on Wednesday night, white Hyundai Santro car with fake registration number was signaled to stop at a checkpoint, but it tried to accelerate and go through the barricade, said the police.
The increase in terror attacks amid reports of infiltration by highly-trained terrorists from Pakistan poses a major security challenge even the country is in the middle of the coronavirus crisis.
