Due to information provided by Jammu and Kashmir Police about encounters with terrorists at these two locations, additional forces have been deployed throughout the area.

Security forces have cordoned off the affected areas following the encounters.

Recent days have seen an increase in terrorist activities in these areas. Just last month, security forces successfully neutralized three terrorists in the Gandoh area of Doda district.

Earlier, security forces had eliminated two terrorists in Pulwama. These militants were senior commanders of the Lashkar-e-Taiba's The Resistance Front branch and had been trapped in a house during an encounter with security forces in the Pulwama district. They were using the house as a hideout.
