Jammu and Kashmir encounter: India summons Pakistan high commission official

The Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) on Saturday summoned the charge d’affaires of the Pakistan High Commission in Delhi to raise strong concerns over the Nagrota encounter in Jammu and Kashmir in which four suspected Jaish-e-Mohammed terrorists were gunned down on Thursday.

News agency ANI quoted a source saying that India conveyed strong concerns to Pakistan over the terror attack in Jammu and Kashmir. India also reiterated its long-standing demand that Pakistan fulfil its international obligations and bilateral commitments to not allow any territory under its control to be used for terrorism against India in any manner. The Indian government is firm and resolute in taking all the necessary measures to safeguard national security, the source said.

In a three-hour long encounter with security forces on the Jammu-Srinagar National Highway near Nagrota on Thursday, 4 suspected Jaish terrorists, who were hiding in a truck, were gunned down. Two policemen were injured during the gunfight.

The local body elections are due in the Kashmir Valley and the terrorists were planning a big attack and that they were headed towards the Kashmir Valley, the police said in a press briefing.
