Indian Army counterattacked four ISIS terrorists in a biggest daredevilry terror strike between the security forces and terrorists in Anantnag’s Srigufwara area in Jammu and Kashmir on Friday. In the crack-down, ISIS terror commander Dawood Sofi along with his three helping hands were gunned down by the Indian Army.
Jammu & Kashmir DGP S.P. Vaid added that the terrorists reportedly connected to Islamic State Jammu & Kashmir (ISJK). The fierce encounter is currently underway in the region and also the internet services have been cut off to ensure safety.
Dawood who previously played a key role in the revival of Tehreek-ul-Mujahideen was believed to have joined hands with ISIS. Dawood was actually from Srinagar but was reported to be engaging and active all across South Kashmir for some time.
Unfortunately, a police personnel was martyred during the ongoing fierce battle and one civilian was also killed in the cross firing process. However, the arms and ammunition were retrieved from the spot and now the operation has come to a close.
DGP S.P. Vaid identified ISIS presence in J&K valley for the first time. Earlier, Jammu and Kashmir Government and Police forces maintained that there is no ISIS presence in the valley despite the fact that there have been four attacks by ISIS on Jammu & Kashmir Police and Central Reserve Police Force in last few months.
DGP S.P. Vaid took to Twitter to confirm that the terror backers originally belong to the Islamic State Jammu and Kashmir (ISJK). Similarly, a massive stone pelting was seen in South Kashmir’s Pulwama area where some terrorists were seen assaulting the Indian Army after its successful operation in Anantnag. The Army didn’t retreat despite searing pressure by the terror backers.
This encounter happened a day after, two police personnel were injured after terrorists fired at a police party in Pulwama district. The Central Government had previously announced the termination of anti-terror operations in Jammu and Kashmir which was suspended as a result of Ramzan.
