2 top Jaish-e-Mohammed terrorists killed in encounter with security forces

Pulwama encounter: Four soldiers have reportedly been martyred in an encounter in Pinglina area of Pulwama district in Jammu and Kashmir on Monday, just three days after an attack on the CRPF convoy, which left 44 jawans dead. As per information, a civilian has also been injured in the exchange of fire between the security forces and the terrorists in the Pulwama encounter. The martyred soldiers include a Major-rank officer. The encounter is in this interior village of the J&K district is going on since early morning. Initially, some Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) militants opened fire on the security forces. A major gun battle broke out between security officials and the terrorists, leading to severe injuries to four jawans, who later succumbed to their injuries.
While two terrorists are holed up at a house in the area, the security officials say there’s no exchange of firing for the past two hours. These terrorists are reportedly linked with the JeM terrorist Adil Dar, who was involved in the Pulwama terror attack on February 14. Though Prime Minister Narendra Modi has resolved to avenge “each drop of tear shed” in the aftermath of the Pulwama terror attack, the government is coming under intense pressure to take stringent action against those harbouring terrorists. The grief over the February-14 attack on the CRPF convoy has not even died down as the Army faced another setback on Monday.
