The Jammu and Kashmir police gunned down a terrorist during an encounter between security forces and terrorists in Baramulla district. The terrorist, identified as Javed Ahmed Wani, had assisted terrorist Gulzar who was responsible in the murder of the two labourers from Bihar, the police said on Thursday.

According to the J&K police, terrorists fired on the additional director of police (ADP) of Army and Police in Cherdari, Baramulla causing alert parties to retaliate. At least one pistol, one loaded magazine and one Pakistani grenade was recovered from the terrorist’s possession.

Incriminating materials, arms and ammunition including 01 AK series rifle and a pistol recovered from their possession were taken case records for further investigation.
