Terror strikes again in J-K’s Doda

A policeman was injured on Wednesday evening when terrorists opened fire on a search party in a village in Gandoh area of Jammu and Kashmir’s Doda district, officials said. The firing was reported from the Kota top area of Bhalesa around 7.41 pm to which security forces retaliated, they said. An intermittent exchange of fire between the two sides was going on when last reports were received. Reinforcements have been rushed to the area to strengthen the cordon, they added.

This was the second terror-related incident in Doda in the last 24 hours and fourth in three days in Jammu and Kashmir. Earlier on Tuesday evening, five Rashtriya Rifles personnel and a Special Police Officer were injured in a terrorist attack in Chattargalla pass. In another incident late on Tuesday, a suspected Pakistani terrorist was killed by security forces in Kathua district. The overnight encounter ended after a second terrorist was also gunned down but a CRPF jawan lost his life in the operation. On Sunday, terrorists attacked a bus carrying pilgrims, causing it to veer off the road and fall into a deep gorge in Reasi, killing nine and injuring 41.

Congress questions PM Modi’s ‘silence’

Congress said the BJP’s chest-thumping and “hollow” claims of return of peace and normalcy in Jammu and Kashmir have been exposed by the three terror attacks in the region in the past three days. Rahul Gandhi said the country is demanding answers as to why those plotting against the country are not being caught. “Modi is busy responding to congratulatory messages and cannot even hear the cries of the families who were brutally killed in Jammu and Kashmir,” he said in a post in Hindi on X. 

‘Talks with Pak needed to end terrorism in J&K’

Terrorism in Jammu and Kashmir will not end unless talks are held with Pakistan, National Conference president Farooq Abdullah said here on Wednesday. Abdullah’s remarks came after three terrorist attacks took place in the Jammu in as many days. The NC president told reporters here on Wednesday, “I have always said that terrorism is not going to end unless there is an understanding between the two nations (India and Pakistan). Terrorism will continue and we will have to face it. The tragedy is that innocent people are getting killed... and that is unfortunate.” More innocent people would lose their lives unless “we wake up” and “find a solution to this”, he said.
