Indian troops have dispatched those two militants to hell who allegedly attacked a CRPF team and killed a sub-inspector Sahib Shukla in Panthna chownk,Srinagar. The terrorists were holed up at a school in Srinagar and were gunned down after a 14-hour gun battle.
According to the authorities, two Army personnel were injured in the encounter. Their condition is however stable as per reports. Along with the bodies of the militants, large amount of arms and ammunition has also been recovered. The officials also confirmed that the sanitization operation is still on.
Last evening, the terrorists who were escaping after carrying out an attack on the personnel of the 29th Battalion of the CRPF at Pantha Chowk had managed to enter the campus of the Delhi Public School, located on the outskirts of Srinagar.
A sub-inspector Sahib Shukla was killed and two CRPF personnel were injured in the attack at Pantha Chowk – a high-security zone located less than a kilometer from the headquarters of Army’s Chinar Corps.
Fortunately, the school was vacant at the time the militants entered it. The Security forces instantly cordoned off the extensive campus of DPS, which has seven buildings.
According to a police officer, “The operation to flush out the terrorists was launched this morning. The exchange of fire between security forces and militants began at first light. In the evening the gun-battle was over and two militants were killed.”
J&K’s Director General of Police SP Vaid said the operation took time as the security forces wanted to ensure “minimum collateral damage”.
“We want to ensure that the (school) building is safe, because the enemy has a nefarious design that the school buildings are destroyed and children have to ultimately abandon their studies. We will ensure that no such thing happens,” Mr Vaid said.
