Security forces are raining havoc on terrorists in the Kashmir Valley. Security forces have killed a terrorist in an ongoing encounter in Tilwani Mohalla of Awantipora Tral. This is the sixth encounter between security forces and terrorists in the last three days. Not only this, the security forces have so far killed eight terrorists. The meeting is still going on in Tilwani.

The security forces say they had asked the terrorists to lay down their arms before starting the retaliatory action, but they had to start firing when they disagreed. As a result, firing continues from both sides. Two to three terrorists are feared trapped in the siege. Internet service has been suspended in the area as a precaution, and additional forces have been called in to strengthen the cordon.

According to the information received from the police, based on information obtained from the sources, a team of SOG, Army and CRPF reached Tilwani Mohalla of Awantipora Tral and started the search operation. It was reported that two to three terrorists had entered the locality as soon as the security forces began a search operation with a siege of the locality. The terrorists hiding in a house started firing on them.
