The security forces killed both the terrorists in retaliatory fire. Relief and rescue work on the spot have started. The area is under siege. According to the information received, two terrorists launched an attack on the CRPF patrol team with automatic rifles on the KP Road of Anantnag.

At the time of filing of this report, firing from both the sides was still on, as the body of one of the terrorists could not be traced while more of their accomplices joined them.

Arshad Ahmed, SHO of the Anantnag police station, has been injured in the terrorist attack. He has been brought to Srinagar for treatment. Ahmed was shot in the chest.

Among the injured is a woman civilian.

Earlier, on Monday in Poonch, Jammu and Kashmir, Pakistan had violated the ceasefire. A young civilian died in the unprovoked attack. Another young man was injured in the Pakistani firing. The Indian Army responded with shelling Pakistani posts.

Despite being an Islamic state, Pakistan did not spare even the day of Eid while violating the ceasefire. According to sources, Pakistan has violated the ceasefire 1,170 times until 6 June this year.

In 2018, Pakistan had violated the ceasefire 1,629 times. The Union Home Ministry had mentioned on 12 December 2018 that the number of terrorist incidents this year was more than double the figure of the previous year.

In February, terrorists had attacked a CRPF convoy in Pulwama in Kashmir using an explosive-laden car, claiming the lives of 40 jawans. The attack led to a worsening of the India-Pakistan relations, after which India retaliated with airstrikes on the terrorist-training camp of Jaish-e-Mohammed in Balakot of Mansehra-Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province of Pakistan.
