An unidentified terrorist was killed by security forces after an encounter broke out in the Tulibal area of Sopore town in the Baramulla district of Jammu and Kashmir on Tuesday.

The police said that the operation is underway. “Sopore Encounter Update: 01 terrorist killed. #Operation in progress. Further details shall follow,” Kashmir Zone Police said in a tweet.

Further details are awaited.

Meanwhile, following the arrest of terrorist Showket Ahmed Sheikh, Kupwara Police and the Army’s 28RR conducted a coordinated anti-terrorism operation.

Security personnel are on high alert since there have been incidences of targeted killings in Kashmir, and members of the minority population have vowed to flee in bulk if the government does not relocate them.

Defence Minister Rajnath Singh, who was in Jammu and Kashmir for two days, encouraged the people not to let hostile elements tear apart the social fabric and observed that the election process is expected to commence in the coming months.

Rajnath Singh also alluded to Pakistan, saying that certain elements were attempting to sow seeds of hate in the Union Territory.

He said there is a foreign conspiracy in the recent targeted killings in Jammu and Kashmir and such attempts would be foiled.
