: Yet another encounter with suspected terrorists began in Kashmir on Monday with reports of 2-3 militants being holed up in the Pulwama district. On receiving an intelligence tip-off, the security forces descended on the Kellar region of South Kashmir, 30 kms away from Srinagar, and challenged the inhabitants. When shots were fired from the house, a full encounter began. Intelligence suggests at least one of the terrorists is a foreigner. CRPF, police and Army are engaged in the operation which may stretch put to tomoroow if the forces decide to halt it due to failing light. Two LeT terrorists were killed by security forces this morning in an encounter in Pulwama on January 9. A day before, two more militants were struck down in an over 30-hr siege at the Lal Chowk. in Srinagar. Monday’s encounter began even as there was a heavy cross-border firing from the Pakistan side on Sabzain Forward Defence Location along the Line of Control (LoC) in Poonch district around 1130 hours today. Indian troops retaliated resulting in exchange of fire for half-an-hour during which sepoy Shurvir Singh was killed. Earlier, militants triggered a blast to cut into the border fencing in Akhnoor sector of Jammu in the wee hours but BSF troops foiled their attempt after a fierce gunfight.
