2 Hizbul Terrorists, Including Army Deserter Killed In Shopian Encounter


Two terrorists, including a former soldier of Indian Army, were killed in a gunfight with security forces at Safanagri in south Kashmir’s Shopian district early on Tuesday morning.

According to police, the gunfight broke out after a joint team of Army and SOG personnel launched a cordon-and-search operation at Safanagri following specific inputs about the presence of some militants there.

While the security forces were carrying out the search operation, terrorists hiding in the area opened fire. The forces retaliated, leading to an encounter, police said.

“Two militants were killed in the gunfight. They have been identified as Mohd Idrees Sultan alias Chota Abrar of Safanagri and Amir Hussain Rather alias Abu Sobaan of Awneera Shopian. They were affiliated to militant outfit Hizbul Mujahideen and were involved in terror attacks on security establishments. They were also responsible for many civilian atrocities in the area. No collateral damage took place during the operation,” a police spokesman said. Read more
