Three soldiers have been martyred in two separate incidents in Jammu and Kashmir. Two Army jawan have martyred and three others injured in an encounter in Awneora area of Shopian district.

Source in police said that the anti terrorist operation was launched last evening and is still continuing. However, no terrorist has been killed yet in the encounter so far. Reports suggest that around five terrorists are holed up in the area.

On the other hand, an Army man was martyred as Pakistani army violated ceasefire along the Line of Control (LoC) in the Poonch sector the yesterevening. Defence spokesperson Lt. Col. Manish Mehta said, the Pakistani army resorted to unprovoked firing on the Indian Army posts at around 5 PM in Krishna Ghati sector. Indian Army retaliated the firing and gave befitting reply.
