“Security forces including Rashtriya Rifles (RR) troops and the special operations group (SOG) of state police started an operation in the early hours of Thursday morning after receiving information about the presence of a group of militants.”

“The exact identity of the slain militants is being established. Search operation is ongoing in the area,” the official added. The Rashtriya Rifles and the Special Operations Group of the Jammu and Kashmir Police began the operation after getting a tip about the presence of militants in the area.

Three AK-47 rifles were recovered from the slain terrorists .

Few days back too,  the Pakistani Rangers  resorted to unprovoked firing at a border security force (BSF) outpost on the international border in Jammu region’s Samba district. This is the second ceasefire violation by Pakistan and its  Pakistan Rangers . Actions that are totally unwarranted . The troops had fired at a BSF border outpost (BOP) in Samba district.

“After a gap of few  days, Pakistani troops earlier in the morning resorted to ceasefire violation along the international border,” a senior police official told IANS . “Pakistani Rangers fired two to three bursts of small arms near BOP 6-R around 4.30 a.m.”
