Three militants were killed early Thursday when army foiled an attack on the battalion headquarters of 30 Rashtriya Rifles in North Kashmir’s Langate area. Army said that militants opened fire on the sentry posts of the RR camp in Langate at two places. The militants then tried to flee, however army and Special Operation Group of Police chased them and engaged in an encounter. The search operation is still in progress. “Three militants have been killed and three AK rifles were recovered from the militants,’’ Defense spokesman
During a press brief later, Commanding Officer, Colonel Rajiv Sharang said that the arms, maps, medicines and, food items were recovered from the militants that were killed. The medicines had “Pakistani markings” on them, suggesting that the militants came from across the border. Other items recovered from the bodies are still being inspected, he said.
“Three terrorists were seen near the perimeter fencing of our camp. Our sentrys challenged the terrorists who fired heavily on our sentry posts. We also retaliated and then a quick reaction team was activated so that the terrorists do not flee the area where they were spotted … We used illumination rounds to illuminate the area and killed all the three terrorists,” Col Sharang told reporters at Langate.
“The medicine which has been recovered from all three terrorists has Pakistani marking. This ascertains that all three terrorists were Pakistani terrorists. The maps and the matrix sheet, which they were using, that also is being analysed. If we come to know more from it, we will let you know,” he said.
