One Jammu and Kashmir policeman was martyred, and three terrorists were gunned down in an encounter in Srinagar’s Fateh Kadal area. “Three terrorists have been eliminated, and one Jammu and Kashmir police personnel has lost his life in the gun-battle,” Imitiyaz Ismail Parray, SSP, Srinagar, told.
On Tuesday, Union Home Minister Rajanth Singh told security forces in Jammu and Kashmir not to fire first, but to retaliate without counting the bullets, if provoked. “It (Pakistan) is our neighbour, so don’t fire first. But if even one bullet comes from that side, then don’t take count of the bullets (fired in retaliation),” he said in his directive to the Armed forces.
