Bandipora encounter Gunbattle between security forces and terrorists is underway in Hajin Handipora of Jammu and Kashmir

According to reports, this is the first time Indian Air Force commandos have been killed in an encounter in Kashmir.

Official sources said the training of the elite Garud personnel with the Army was part of a range of measures the Indian Air Force (IAF) had initiated to bolster security at all its installations after the terror attack on the Pathankot Air Force base previous year.

In September 2016, over 19 Indian soldiers were killed in an attack on the Uri army base.

Two Indian Air Force (IAF) personnel were on Wednesday killed in a gunfight with militants in Bandipora district of Jammu and Kashmir, an army official said.

The terrorists are reportedly associated with Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT).

"As the forces were closing in around 5 am, the hiding militants fired upon them, resulting in the injuries to three personnel of Garud Commando Force".

Security personnel are retaliating to the gun battle.

The operation started when the army cordoned off Hajin area after a specific input about the presence of rebels, officials said. Two AK rifles, one pistol with 19 rounds of ammunition, one grenade, two pouches and other ammunition were seized from the encounter site. Two Kashmiris were also died in a gunfight with Indian security forces in Bandipora district.

Womenfolk amid eyes full of tears sang eulogies while mourners carried slain Nasrullah's body through the streets of Hajin before his funeral was held, local sources said. "The Chinar Corps commander and all ranks salute the martyrs and offer condolences to the bereaved families".

"Both the slain terrorists were involved in many attacks, including the one on BSF jawan Muhammad Ramzan inside his home at Hajin while on leave last month", the police said. The security forces are going after militants as part of Operation Hunt Down and on the basis of a hit list of terrorists.
