The Indian Army, in collaboration with Jammu and Kashmir Police and intelligence agencies, conducted a joint operation to prevent the infiltration attempt in the Uri Sector, Baramulla, as communicated in a social media post by the Army’s Chinar Corps.

During the operation, three terrorists tried to infiltrate into Indian territory but were met by vigilant troops. While the bodies of two militants were recovered, the retrieval of the third was hindered by firing from a Pakistani post nearby. The operation is still ongoing, according to the Army’s latest update. The identities and affiliations of the slain militants have not been confirmed by the police.

It’s noteworthy that this infiltration attempt and encounter coincided with another operation in the Anantnag district aimed at neutralizing terrorists who had taken positions in a forested, hilly terrain. As of Saturday, the gunfight had entered its fourth day.

Addressing the ongoing operation in Anantnag, Additional Director General of Police (ADGP) Kashmir, Vijay Kumar, issued a statement on a social media platform, urging retired police and army officers to refrain from speculating about the operation using the “Ambush Hypothesis.” He clarified that the operation was based on specific intelligence inputs and was still in progress with the intention of neutralizing the 2-3 trapped terrorists. The Army had effectively cordoned off the area to maintain control.

Tragically, during the ongoing encounter, security officials reported that one soldier, who had been reported missing since Thursday, lost his life, as reported by ANI.
