Indian security forces are on the lookout for the terrorists who killed three soldiers in Jammu and Kashmir’s Kulgam district on Sunday, May 29, 2023. The soldiers were identified as Havaldar Praveen Kumar, Naik Lokendra Singh, and Lance Naik Sameer Singh. They were part of a joint team of the Army and the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) that was conducting a search operation in the area.
The terrorists opened fire on the security forces’ camp at around 3:30 am. The soldiers retaliated, but the terrorists managed to escape. The bodies of the three soldiers were recovered from the site of the encounter.
The search operation for the terrorists is still underway. The security forces have deployed additional troops in the area and are conducting cordon and search operations. The Indian Army has also issued a reward of Rs 10 lakh for information leading to the capture of the terrorists.
The killing of the three soldiers has once again highlighted the security challenges in Jammu and Kashmir. The region has been witnessing a surge in violence in recent months. In April 2023, at least 20 security personnel were killed in a series of attacks by terrorists.
The Indian government has said that it is committed to the security of Jammu and Kashmir and that it will not tolerate terrorism in the region. The government has also said that it is working to address the root causes of terrorism in the region.
The killing of the three soldiers has also sparked outrage in India. People have taken to social media to express their anger and grief. They have also called for the government to take strong action against terrorism.
The Indian government has said that it will not let the sacrifices of the three soldiers go in vain. The government has vowed to bring the terrorists to justice and to ensure the safety of the people of Jammu and Kashmir.
