 Jammu/ Three terrorists and a police personnel were killed in an encounter which broke out between terrorists and security forces in Srinagar’s Fateh Kadal area, locality of Srinagar in the wee hours of Wednesday.

The Fateh Kadal encounter has been reported just a few days after a militant was killed in a gunfight with the security forces in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama district, police said.

According to reports, the joint operation by the Army, J&K Police and the CRPF is still on.

 Imitiyaz Ismail Parray, SSP, Srinagar, also informed reporters that three hardcore terrorist have been eliminated in the encounter and one policeman also lost his life.

The encounter began after the security forces received specific intelligence inputs regarding the presence of some hardcore terrorists in the area.

The security forces then cordoned off the entire area and launched a massive combing and search operation to flush out the terrorists holed up in the area.

It was reported that a top Lashkar-e-Toiba commander was among the terrorists holed up in the area, said reports.A fierce gunbattle is currently on between both sides.

As a precautionary measure, mobile internet services have been suspended and the entire area has been cordoned off. 

The security forces had last week eliminated a top Hizbul Mujahideen commander Mannan Wani, whose killing had triggered tension in the Aligarh Muslim University in Uttar Pradesh where some Kashmiri students were slapped with sedition for holding a prayer meet for the slain terrorist.
