4 JeM terrorists eliminated

Notably, four terrorists of the Jaish-e-Mohammed were eliminated by security forces on Thursday in a fierce gunfight near Jammu and Kashmir’s Nagrota.

The gunfight started at around 4.50 near a toll plaza in the Ban area of Nagrota on the Srinagar-Jammu national highway. A truck was ferrying the terrorists to Kashmir. Police said they had intelligence inputs regarding the same and the truck was checked by policemen at the toll plaza.

Mukesh Singh, inspector general of police (Jammu), had said the terrorists hiding in the truck lobbed grenades on security forces during the checking. A few grenades exploded inside the truck, which eventually caught fire. “Four terrorists were eliminated in the exchange of fire,” he said.
