Three Pakistani terrorists were gunned down during an encounter in Jammu and Kashmir's Baramulla district on Wednesday, police said. A Jammu and Kashmir policeman was also martyred during the operation which began in the morning.

"Three #Pakistani #terrorists killed. One JKP personnel also attained #martyrdom in this chance encounter. #Incriminating materials including arms and ammunition recovered…," Inspector General of Police, Kashmir zone, Vijay Kumar tweeted.

The encounter took place at Najibhat crossing in Kreeri area of Baramulla.

In a separate incident on Tuesday, an off-duty police constable was killed and his nine-year-old daughter injured after terrorists fired at them in Srinagar. Hours after the incident, The Resistance Front (TRF), an outfit affiliated with Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT), in a statement on social media claimed responsibility for the attack.

Providing details, police said constable Saifullah Qadri and his daughter were walking outside their house at Anchar Soura at around 5 pm when terrorists fired indiscriminately at them. While Qadri died on spot, the girl sustained a bullet injury and was rushed to a hospital.
