Clashes break out between Army and Civilians after 2 Kashmiri Terrorists Killed

Clashes erupted in South Kashmir’s Pulwama district on Saturday after security forces eliminated two terrorists in a joint anti-terror operation in the area.

The encounter was carried out by the Army, police forces, Special Operations Group (SOG) and 44 Rashtriya Rifles personnel.

Sources said security forces cordoned off Tahab area after receiving intelligence inputs about the presence of 3-4 militants there.

After the search intensified, the terrorists fired on the forces, triggering a gun battle that led to their deaths. The militants have been identified as Shabir Ahmad Mir and Shariq Ahmad, who were affiliated to the Hizb-ul-Mujahideen.

Thousands of Kashmiris attended Shariq’s last rites at his ancestral Takuna village of Pulwama. According to sources, shortly after the encounter clashes broke out in Tahab, injuring one person.
