 Affected Countries: india;

Two soldiers were injured in an encounter that ended with terrorists giving security forces the slip in Kakapora belt in south Kashmir’s Pulwama district early Tuesday.

Several hours of search later, the anti-terror operation was called off, a senior police officer said. Meanwhile, two Al-Badr affiliates were arrested at Pulwama’s Ladhoo crossing area with Rs 6 lakh cash.

Acting on intelligence inputs about the presence of terrorists in Kakapora’s Marwal village, a joint team of Indian Army’s 50RR, CRPF and Pulwama Police launched a cordon-and-search operation in the area. Holed-up terrorists opened fire at the search party, triggering an encounter in which two Armymen were injured, the officer said.

Following the initial fire exchange, however, the ultras managed to escape and the operation was called off afterwards.

Later in the day, a joint team of security forces acting on a tip-off and arrested the Al-Badr duo — identified as Rayees-ul-Hassan and Mushtaq Ahmad Mir, both residents of Pulwama’s Awantipora — with Rs 6 lakh cash meant to fuel terror activities of the outfit in the region, said an official.

The two were travelling on a two-wheeler from the southern district of Shopian to Pulwama’s Khrew area and were apprehended at Ladhoo crossing. “Incriminating material of Al-Badr outfit was recovered from their possession. Their vehicle was also seized,” the official confirmed.
