Sopore: Militant gunned down, Army captain, 2 jawans killed


A militant was killed, while the Army lost a captain and two jawans in an encounter that began Monday night in Sopore, where “top militants” were holed up in two houses.
The area around two houses where the militants have holed up looks like a battlefield as a strong contingent of army personnel cordoned off the area with the help of razor sharp wires and armoured vehicles to not let the militants get away.
The extra measures have been taken following reports that the holed up militants are from top brass of different terror groups brought together by the ISI.
Flood lights were set up along the roads leading to the houses to prevent the militants from escaping in the cover of darkness. The locals of the town have been instructed to remain indoors as heavy exchange of fire is continuing from both sides since encounter started.
This is the fourth major encounter in the last one month in Sopore after it was declared a separate police division.
