Inside a terrorist hideout

While the army continued its search for the terrorists in hills of Pampore, TIMES NOW today accessed the hideout in which the terrorists sought refuge during the encounter. 

The 10 terrorists had taken refuge in a small room in the jungles of Pampore in South Kashmir. The hideout was found to be well stocked with food stuff including vegetables, rice and other material, water and blankets, enough to survive for a long time. Sources also said that the terrorists were living here for a some time now, but were identified only after the gun battle broke out. 

The army had launched a massive search operation after getting a tip-off that 10 infiltrarors are hiding in the hills near Pampore town in South Kashmir's Pulwama district. 

A brief encounter also took place between the militants and the security personnel in which one Army jawan was injured, after which the the militants managed to give the security forces the slip. Since then the Army has been on the look-out.
