A fresh exchange of fire erupted in Arwani and Anantnag districts of Jammu & Kashmir. Two terrorists are believed to be holed up in the area.
The gun battle in Arwani district resumes after an operation to flush out terrorists was halted on Wednesday. Top Lashkar commanders including Abu Dujana are reported to have been trapped in the crossfire. Abu Dujana is termed as Burhan Wani’s successor and defense analyst believe that if Abu is killed this would be a major setback for the terrorist organizations operating from Pakistan to create discomfort in the valley. As you read the encounter is underway and we should expect army to brief media anytime as soon as the encounter ends. This is a major operation and the forces are extremely careful about the proceedings.
