Four Hizbul Mujahideen Terrorists Killed in Kulgam Encounter, Hideout Discovered

Four Hizbul Mujahideen terrorists were killed in an encounter in Kulgam, Jammu and Kashmir, on Saturday. Authorities have launched an investigation into the potential involvement of locals in sheltering the terrorists after discovering a hidden bunker constructed inside a wardrobe at their hideout in Chinnigam Frisal. A video circulating online shows officials inspecting the hideout, revealing the ingenious yet disturbing method used by the terrorists to conceal themselves.

The discovery of the bunker has raised concerns about the potential for local support networks aiding the terrorists. Authorities are determined to thoroughly investigate the matter and ensure those involved are brought to justice.

The encounter in Kulgam is part of a series of incidents that have heightened security concerns in the region. On Sunday, Jammu and Kashmir Director General of Police (DGP) RR Swain announced that six terrorists were killed in two separate encounters in Kulgam. The initial encounter took place in Modergam village on Saturday, followed by another in the Frisal Chinnigam area.

These incidents coincide with the ongoing Amarnath Yatra in South Kashmir, where security measures have been significantly heightened.

Tragically, two soldiers lost their lives during the Saturday encounters in Kulgam. L NK Pardeep Kumar and Sep Pravin Janjal Prabhakar were killed in the line of duty while battling the terrorists. Officials from the Indian Army and the Jammu and Kashmir administration paid tribute to the fallen soldiers on Sunday morning.

Following the encounter in Kulgam, security forces launched a search operation in Rajouri district on Sunday after several rounds of bullets were fired near an army camp. The clash lasted for approximately half an hour before the terrorists managed to escape into the nearby forest.

These events underscore the ongoing security challenges faced in Jammu and Kashmir. The authorities remain vigilant and committed to combating terrorism and ensuring the safety of citizens and security personnel.
