Terrorists attacked an Army and police joint checkpost in Jammu Kashmir’s Doda late on Tuesday night in the third such incident in the past 72 hours.

According to official sources, multiple rounds were fired at the temporary operating base (TOB) in the remote Chattargala area and several teams of security forces were rushed to the scene.

The attack triggered a gunfight between terrorists and security forces in the higher reaches of Doda district, injuring at least six personnel.

A local terror group with backing from Pak-based Jaish-e-Mohammed, Kashmir Tigers, has claimed responsibility for the attack, saying several Indian security personnel were killed in the attack.

The attack came at a time when security forces were running search operations to arrest terrorists in the Doga region.

It was the third such attack within three days after the incidents in Kathua and Reasi. The Doda incident came hours after a terrorist was killed in an encounter with security forces after terrorists fired at a home in Jammu and Kashmir’s Kathua district. Earlier, on June 9, terrorists fired upon a bus carrying pilgrims from a shrine in Jammu and Kashmir’s Reasi district, killing 10 people and injuring 33 others.

According to sources, the terrorists belonged to the same group that targeted an Indian Air Force (IAF) convoy in Poonch on May 4. Police have started circulating sketches of wanted terrorists and announced bounty on their heads.

Speaking about the three consecutive incidents, Jammu and Kashmir Additional Director General Of Police Anand Jain said, “It is our hostile neighbour, who always tries to damage the peaceful environment in our country. This (Hiranagar Terror attack) appears to be a fresh infiltration. The one terrorist has been killed, the search for the other is also underway.”

Follow-up search ops in Kathua

Security forces have initiated a follow-up search operation in response to the terror attack in Kathua’s Hiranagar on Tuesday night, where one out of two terrorists was neutralised in an encounter.

Search operations to arrest other terrorists are underway. The security forces have cordoned off the area.

Security forces also employed drones to find other hiding terrorists in Kathua.

Meanwhile, top police officials have warned people against fake news circulation on social media.
