A police officer said the bodies of all the three terrorists have been found after the Pulwama encounter ended. "The operation in Pulwama is over and three terrorists have been killed. Their identity and group affiliation is being ascertained," the officer said.
The terrorists attacked the district police lines complex in Pulwama, 25 kilometres from Srinagar, just before dawn yesterday. While the police, the CRPF and the Army cornered the terrorists, they first ensured that family members of the police personnel living at the complex were evacuated.
After all the civilians were taken out of the residential quarters, the security forces began the offensive, which resulted in the killing of the terrorists.
Tributes were paid today to two CRPF personnel who were killed in the attack. While the wreath-laying ceremony of two CRPF jawans was held in Srinagar yesterday, tributes were paid to constable Borase Dinesh Dipak, a resident of Gujarat, and Mohammad Yaseen Tali, a resident of Jammu and Kashmir, today at Recruit Training Centre on the outskirts of Srinagar.
