One of the three Pak militants who sneaked into Jammu killed in encounterAugust 27th, 2008 - 12:11 pm ICT by ANI
Jammu, Aug 27 (ANI): One of the three militants who had early this morning killed four civilians and one Junior Commissioned Officer (JCO) after sneaking into Jammu on Tuesday, was killed in an encounter here just few hours ago.
The encounter between the remaining two militants and the Army was still going on as the militants were trapped in a house at Chinore. These militants have also held five of a family as hostages.
Meanwhile, high alert has been sounded in Jammu after these militants fired indiscriminately in the Mishriwala area on the outskirts of the city early this morning.
Efforts were on to nab the militants who were seen wearing police uniforms and travelling in an autorickshaw after killing the driver.
These militants are believed to be the same men who infiltrated the international border under the cover of the indiscriminate firing from Pakistan troops at the Border Security Force (BSF) posts in Kana Chak area of Akhnoor sector near Jammu on Tuesday.
In another incident of ceasefire violation along the Line of Control (LoC), four BSF personnel were injured in Poonch District of Jammu and Kashmir when Pakistani forces opened fire from across the border. (ANI)
