Earlier on Saturday (September 16), police reported a terrorist was killed by security personnel in an encounter in the Uri town of Jammu and Kashmir’s Baramulla district.

Sharing the statement of Additional Director General of Police (ADGP) Kashmir Vijay Kumar, Kashmir Zone Police posted on micro-blogging site X a day ago, “Rtd Police/Army officers should avoid the “Ambush Hypothesis”. It is a specific input based ops. Ops are in progress, and all 2-3 trapped terrorists will be neutralised.”

The Army has maintained a tight cordon-off in the area, they said. Meanwhile, a soldier who had been reported missing on Thursday lost his life in the ongoing encounter, officials said on Friday.
