An army jawan and two terrorists were killed in an encounter between security forces and terrorists in Jammu and Kashmir’s Bandipora district, news agency ANI reported. The encounter broke out in Naidkhai area after a search operations were launched in the area following inputs from intelligence agencies, an army official said. A combing operation has been launched to neutralise any militants hiding in the area.

According to PTI reports, the identity and group affiliation of the slain militants is being ascertained.

Bandipora was the site of an earlier encounter on Tuesday in which two terrorists were killed. Several notes of Rs 2000, that were introduced by the Reserve Bank less than two weeks ago in the event of the government’s demonetisation move, were recovered from the terrorists. One of the reasons cited behind the government’s move to withdraw the high value currency notes was the use of counterfeit notes in funding terrorist activities in the country.

Another encounter between militants and security forces was reported in Sopore area of Baramulla district.

Further details of the operation are awaited.

    Apparently surgical strikes aggravated instead of ending conflicts. Failed surgery?

      Islam, as a religious system, is entirely of Satanic origin. The Devil is behind every aspect of it. It is a "monotheistic" form of the ancient moon worship. When Muslims circle the Kabah en m, the Devil is the true object of their worship. Islam to pagan Arabs is an excellent satanic counterfeit that has influenced 1/4 of the earth's potion. Islam is certainly the Devil's greatest challenge . Although Islam is a monotheistic religion, it is really a pagan religion reformed and repackaged into monotheism. Islam is paganism in monotheistic wrapping paper. Muhammad chose one god, from among hundreds of pagan gods, to be his one monotheistic god. "Islam is Polytheism with a monotheistic veil". "Islam is Repackaged Polytheism.

            This has to stop. India must mobilize her 1.3 billion people and must use her human resources and saturate Kashmir Valley and the border regions with armed forces. This will end terrorism totally. Tiny stan has external backing thus taking this into consideration things she must be handled. Next Mr. Modi must ignore anti-India elements externally and internally and immediately bring back Kashmiri Brahmins and settle them in safe zones oin the Valley some of their Muslim brethren can also be placed in these colonies. Ethnic colonies are found in all great democracies so why should India be different? The train connection with Delhi and Srinagar must be hastened. Old fossilized s like Farooq Abdullah must be ignored he always basis all his policies on this pimp stan. Farooq is now a frustrated person. This game was over in 1974 when India blasted a sophisticated nuclear bomb. The nuclear program of lilliputian stan is a hoax she has no Uranium ore and and has one or two Uranium-235 based warheads received from China. No great use against the Indian giant which is a rural;br/gt;lt;br/gt;People like Zakir Naik must be placed behind bars he is strongly financed by the U.S. Jewish;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Mr. Modi has done well to punish the people holding black money.
