Two Pakistani Terrorists Associated with Lashkar-e-Taiba Killed in Baramulla Encounter

Baramulla, Jammu and Kashmir – In a significant operation, the Indian Army has successfully neutralized two Pakistani terrorists linked to the Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) militant group. The encounter took place on Wednesday in the Baramulla district, resulting in the deaths of the terrorists identified as Usman and Umar, according to a statement by Brigadier Deepak Dev, Commander of the 5 Sector Rashtriya Rifles.

Details of the Encounter

The operation was initiated based on specific intelligence received about the presence of terrorists in the Watergam area of Baramulla. Acting on this information, security forces, comprising the Indian Army, Jammu and Kashmir Police (JKP), and the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF), launched a cordon-and-search operation. The operation quickly escalated when the terrorists opened fire on the security personnel, prompting a fierce firefight.

Terrorists and Security Personnel

Brigadier Dev disclosed that both terrorists, Usman and Umar, were Pakistani nationals who had been active in the Kashmir Valley, with Usman operating since 2020. The encounter also resulted in injuries to two security personnel, who are currently receiving medical treatment.

Intelligence and Execution

In recent weeks, there had been consistent intelligence reports regarding the movement of a terrorist group in the Sopore-Rafiabad area of Baramulla District. The decisive moment came with a tip-off from the Jammu and Kashmir Police, indicating that two terrorists were holed up in a house in Hadipura village in the Rafiabad area. Following this lead, the joint forces swiftly cordoned off the area and began evacuating civilians from nearby houses to ensure their safety.

Aftermath and Seizure of Weapons

Upon securing the area and commencing the search, the terrorists engaged the forces, resulting in the ensuing firefight. Following the neutralization of the terrorists, a substantial cache of weapons and ammunition was recovered from the site, further highlighting the preparedness and potential threat posed by the militants.

Significance and Cooperation

Brigadier Dev emphasized that the elimination of these terrorists represents a major success for the security forces in their ongoing efforts to maintain peace and stability in the region. He credited the cooperation of the local Kashmiri people as a crucial element in the success of the operation, reinforcing the importance of community support in counter-terrorism efforts.

Ongoing Efforts

The security forces remain vigilant and committed to conducting sustained operations to ensure the safety and security of the region. The recent encounter is a testament to their resolve in combating terrorism and safeguarding the citizens of Jammu and Kashmir.

As the situation evolves, the Indian Army, along with other security agencies, continues to work tirelessly to thwart any threats and uphold peace in the Valley.
