"In this regard, a case under relevant sections of law stands has been registered at Qaimoh and Police Station," ANI quoted police as saying.

Further inquiries and investigations into the matter are currently underway.

The crackdown on terror modules comes days after the encounter in Jammu and Kashmir's Anantnag district ended on its seventh day following the recovery of the body of local terrorist Uzair Khan. However, police said that the search operation will continue as many areas are left to be cleared.

"The search operation will continue as many areas are still left...We would appeal to the public to not go there because there are many grenades there. We had information about two to three terrorists. It's possible that we find the third body somewhere that's why we will complete the search operation. We found the body of the LeT Commander and retrieved it, we could also spot another body...We're looking for the third body," ADGP Kashmir Vijay Kumar said, speaking to reporters on Tuesday.
