4 terrorists killed in Jammu and Kashmir's Kulgam in 2 separate encounters

Kulgam (Jammu Kashmir): At least one soldier was killed, and four terrorists were gunned down by security forces in separate encounters in Jammu and Kashmir's Kulgam district on Saturday, officials said.

The first gunfight erupted in Modergam village after security forces launched a search operation based on intelligence inputs. At least two to three terrorists were cornered in their hideout by security forces.

Informing about the gunfight, the Kashmir Zone Police said in a post on microblogging site X, "Encounter started at Modergam Village of #Kulgam District. Police and Security Forces are on job. Further details shall follow."

A few hours later, another gunfight broke out in Frisal Chinnigam village. Security forces acted swiftly after receiving a tip-off about the presence of Lashkar group terrorists in the area.

When the forces reached the village, the terrorists hiding in a house opened fire, triggering a gunfight.

The intense exchange of gunfire continues at both locations.

Earlier last month, two top commanders from The Resistance Front, an offshoot of Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Taiba, were trapped in a house they used as a hideout during a gunfight with security forces in Pulwama district.
