Srinagar/IBNS: Three terrorists were killed in a fierce gunfight with security forces in the Gandoh area of Doda district in Jammu and Kashmir, media reports said.

These terrorists were believed to be involved in recent attacks on the army and police in the Valley.

A huge cache of arms and ammunition including US-made M4 carbine have been recovered from the encounter site.

Vijay Kumar, Additional Director General of Police J&K said that the police received information about the presence of three terrorists after which they launched a search operation this morning.

In the last week, operations to flush out terrorists have intensified in Doda and Rajouri, Poonch regions following a series of terrorist attacks.

On June 11, an army camp was attacked in which five soldiers and a special police officer were injured. In another incident, terrorists attacked a police camp and injured one policeman.

The attacks led to a massive security revamp and security forces started coordinated operations to track down terrorists and their local collaborators.

According to the police, three locals who allegedly provided food and shelter to terrorists have been arrested.
