5 Army personnel martyred in encounter with terrorists in Jammu and Kashmir Poonch

Jammu: A Junior Commissioned Officer (JCO) and four jawans were martyred in a fierce encounter between security forces and heavily armed terrorists in Jammu and Kashmir’s Poonch district on Monday.

According to official sources, Army personnel were critically injured in an encounter with terrorists in villages near Dara Ki Gali (DKG) in Surankote area of ​​Poonch district and later died at a medical facility.

Official sources said the encounter started in the morning following intelligence inputs when security forces launched a cordon and search operation (CASO) in the area where three to four terrorists are believed to be hiding.

“The terrorists fired upon the joint patrol party, which in retaliation led to an encounter,” the sources said. A defense spokesman said firing was still ongoing.

Confirming the incident, Defense PRO (Jammu) Lt Col Devendra Anand said, “Based on intelligence inputs, this morning the Indian Army cordoned off the villages near Dera Ki Gali (DKG) in Surankot jurisdiction of District Poonch and Search operation has been started.”
“In the ongoing encounter with terrorists, a JCO, four Indian Army personnel who sustained serious injuries were immediately shifted to the nearest medical facility.”
