Sources said, the slain may have been part of a terrorist group, who were on a mission to carry out a suicide attack in and around Jammu city.
The gunfight between terrorists and security forces began in Jammu’s Sidhra district, a day after a major terror attack in J&K’s Udhampur district was averted. A major terror attack plan was thwarted, according to police officials, when a cylindrical-shaped IED, 300-400 grammes of RDX, seven 7.62 mm cartridges, and five detonators were discovered in the Basantgarh area.
Police also apprehended a suspect and recovered a coded sheet and letter pad page from the terrorist organisation Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT).
