Kashmir: In a significant anti-terrorism operation, a joint team of security forces successfully busted a terrorist hideout in a house in the Firsal area of Kulgam. The operation followed an intense 28-hour-long encounter that resulted in the elimination of four local terrorists and the martyrdom of an Army jawan.

The operation commenced after security forces received precise intelligence inputs indicating the presence of terrorists in the Firsal area. Acting swiftly, a joint team comprising Army, CRPF, and J&K Police personnel cordoned off the area and initiated a meticulous search operation. As the forces approached the suspected hideout, the terrorists, entrenched inside the house, opened fire, leading to a fierce and prolonged gun battle.

Throughout the intense encounter, the security forces exhibited exceptional bravery and tactical acumen. Despite the challenging conditions, they managed to neutralize the threat posed by the terrorists. Tragically, the encounter also claimed the life of an Army jawan, who made the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty.

Following the conclusion of the encounter, the security forces conducted a thorough search of the premises. During the search, they uncovered a well-concealed hideout within the house, which was being used by the terrorists as a base of operations. The hideout yielded a substantial cache of arms and ammunition, including three AK-47 rifles, one grenade, one pistol, and various other weaponry and supplies.

The recovery of these weapons underscores the seriousness of the threat posed by the terrorists and highlights the importance of continued vigilance and proactive measures by the security forces. The successful operation is a testament to the coordinated efforts and unwavering commitment of the Army, CRPF, and J&K Police in their fight against terrorism.

Senior security officials praised the bravery and professionalism of the forces involved in the operation. They emphasized that such operations are crucial to maintaining peace and security in the region and assured the public that efforts to root out terrorism will continue with unrelenting resolve.

Residents of Firsal and the surrounding areas expressed relief and gratitude towards the security forces for their decisive action. The operation has bolstered confidence among the local population, who have long been affected by the shadow of terrorism.

As the region moves forward, the security forces remain on high alert, ready to respond to any further threats. The successful busting of the hideout and the recovery of a significant cache of arms and ammunition represent a major victory in the ongoing battle against terrorism in Jammu and Kashmir.

The sacrifice of the martyred jawan will not be forgotten, and his bravery will serve as an enduring inspiration to all those who continue to fight for peace and security in the region.
