Jammu encounter: Four Army personnel martyred fighting terrorists in Rajouri district

Rajouri (Jammu and Kashmir): An intense encounter broke out in the Baji Mall forests of Jammu and Kashmir's Rajouri district, resulting in the loss of four Army personnel.

The confrontation commenced following a joint operation by the Army's special forces and the police. This action was initiated based on intelligence inputs suggesting the presence of terrorists within the forested region.


The rugged terrain of Pir Panjal forest has consistently posed a challenge for security forces due to its dense foliage, providing cover for terrorists to conceal their positions.



Terrorist groups exploit the treacherous mountains, thick jungles, and alpine forests, leveraging the terrain's complexity to evade detection by security personnel.

This incident adds to a series of encounters in the region, reflecting the continuous struggle of security forces combating terrorist activities. Last week, security forces neutralised a terrorist during an encounter in the Guller-Behrote area of Budhal tehsil, reinforcing the persistent threat in the region.
