In a swooping operation in J&K, Indian Army, CRPF and Jammu & Kashmir Police killed 13 terrorists in total including the ones who kidnapped and killed Indian Army lieutenant Ummer Fayaz Parry when he visited his home to attend his cousin’s wedding in Shopian in May last year.

“Today is a very special day in counter terrorism operations for security forces. In three operations, of which two have concluded and one is still ongoing, we have neutralize seven terrorists. Out of these two were involved in the murder of Lt Ummer Fayaz. We have avenged his death”, said Chinar Corps commander Lt Gen AK Bhatt, who served as DGMO in his earlier posting.

J&K DG Shesh Paul Vaid tweeted: Encounter concluded. One more terrorist body recovered from Shopian encounter site. In all 12 terrorists neutralised (one more being ascertained), 3 soldiers martyred and 1 terrorist caught alive. It’s unfortunate that stone pelting around encounter site cost 4 civilian deaths.

During the operations, terrorist got cover by some Pakistan paid locals when they started stone pelting on security forces.  Casualty of 4 civilians reported in the cross fire. Indian security forces tried to rescue trapped civilians in Kachidoora Shopian.

One terrorist killed in Dialgam Anantnag after efforts of his family/ J&K Police failed to surrender, one caught alive. In Draggad Shopian 7 bodies of terrorists recovered including top commanders.

The impact of the Indian security forces action was felt across the border. In a nervous break down, Ministry of foreign affairs of Pakistan issues a press release terming the killed terrorists as ‘martyed’ innocent civilians.

“Pakistan condemns the brutal and indiscriminate use of force by the Indian occupatuon forces that has resulted in the martyrdom of at least eleven young innocent Kashmiris in different incidents in Shopian and Anantnag in Indian Occupied Kashmir (IoK) today”, press release reads.

Pakistan has been heavily and actively sponsoring terrorism in India’s Jammu and Kashmir. In recent months, many terrorist attacks were mounted at Indian security establishments aided, abated and operated from acorss the LoC.
