SRINAGAR, Sep 02 : A suspected terrorist was killed during an encounter in Tantray Pora in Kashmir’s Kulgam on Saturday morning.
It is being said that the slain terrorist was involved in the brutal killing of 22-year-old Army officer Ummer Fayaz in Kashmir.
This incident stoked concerns as militants had been indulging in direct face-offs with the security forces. However, targetting army officers, when off duty, and murdering them is not very common.
Few hours before Saturday’s encounter, in another incident, a group of terrorists on Friday attacked a bus carrying security personnel in Srinagar, injuring five policemen.
The attack took place even as there were reports from intelligence agencies that over 250 terrorists have trespassed across the border and were planning attacks during Eid celebrations in Kashmir.
