Combing operations are currently underway.

Four terrorists were suspected to be holed up in Gatipora. One of the slain terrorists has been identified as one Abid.

Earlier today, in a major operation, the security forces gunned down top Jaish-e-Mohammad commander Khalid in an encounter at Baramulla in Jammu and Kashmir.

On October 2, the Indian Army foiled infiltration bid in Jammu and Kashmir's Tangdhar area by killing two terrorists.

Kashmir has witnessed an increase in anti-insurgency operations after a rise in militant attacks following the killing of Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani in July last year. More than 140 militants have reportedly been killed in the valley this year after security forces drew up a hit-list of top militant commanders.
