Indian Army will soon deploy robots to curb terror in Jammu and Kashmir

132 terrorists have been killed in encounters with police and security forces in Kashmir Valley in over 7 months period this year, security officials said. Earlier, one soldier was injured in a terrorist attack on an Indian Army camp in Kupwara region of J&K in the wee hours of the morning.

Police officials suspect two to three militants are holed up in the area. "Some exchange of fire", Jammu and Kashmir police Twitter handle wrote.

Itoo, who was the operational commander of Hizb and most wanted militant, was identified by his family members who were brought to the encounter site to identify him.

Three Indian soldiers were also wounded in the fighting, Khan said. Mopping operation is underway.

Anti-India protests followed the fighting Saturday and Sunday, leading to clashes between rock-throwing residents and government forces who fired shotgun pellets and tear gas. Our correspondent reports that the slain terrorists were identified as local Hizbul Mujahideen cadres.

Three Kashmiri youth were martyred in Indian occupied Kashmir's (IoK) Shopian district on Sunday, the Kashmir Media Service (KSM) reported. The injured security personnel were hospitalized.

The gunfight triggered after contingents of Indian troops and police encircled the area on intelligence information suggesting presence of militants. This prompted the security forces to wait till dawn while keeping a tight cordon around the area before launching a major strike.

Police said Imtiyaz Ahmad was injured when the bomb was hurled at Badyari Chowk on Saturday evening.
