Three terrorists, who were holed up in Jammu and Kashmir’s Sidhra, were killed during a brief encounter with security forces on Wednesday.


The J-K ADGP said that terrorists were in a truck when there was an exchange of fire happened.

All three terrorists have now been killed and the body of one of the terrorists has been retrieved from the encounter site.

This comes just one day after police defused a 15-kilogram improvised explosive device (IED) in Jammu and Kashmir’s Udhampur district, averting a major terrorist attack.

Officials said a major terror plan was averted when the cylindrical shaped IED, 300-400 grams of RDX, seven 7.62 mm cartridges and five detonators were recovered in the Basantgarh area.

Police also recovered a coded sheet and letter pad page of terrorist organisation Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) and detained a suspect.
