 Anantnag Encounter On After 48 Hours, 2 Army Officers martyred , 1 Soldier Missing.



SRINAGAR, Sept 15: A soldier has gone missing while two others were injured in an encounter with militants that is underway for over 48 hours in Jammu and Kashmir’s Anantnag district.

The fierce encounter broke out early Wednesday morning after the army and the police launched a joint operation to hunt down militants in the dense forests of Kokernag.

Three officers, including two from the Army and a policeman, were killed in action on that day.

The security forces are using new-generation weapons and devices, including strike-capable Heron drones, in their intensified anti-militant operations.

The Army and Jammu and Kashmir Police launched their joint search operation on the night of September 12-13. They laid a cordon in search of some militants in Gadool  village, officials said.

An extensive search led to the conclusion that the militants were in a hideout in the higher reaches in the dense forest.
