Three JeM terrorists, killed in a gunfight near a toll plaza here, had left an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) under a hoarding on the Jammu-Srinagar national highway which another member of the module was to use to target security forces, police said on Saturday, 1 February.

The Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) terrorists also carried 'armoured piercing steel core ammunition' which can go through Level 3 protection bulletproof vehicles that police and other security forces use, they said.

Three Jaish-e-Mohammad terrorists were neutralised in an encounter after four of them opened fire at a police team at a toll plaza on the Jammu-Srinagar national highway on Friday, 31 January, injuring a policeman.

The firing took place around 5 am when the police team stopped a Srinagar-bound truck for checking near the toll plaza in the Ban area of Nagrota, the officials said.

The group of terrorists was on their way to Srinagar when they were intercepted by the police team at the toll plaza, the DGP said.

A massive search operation has been launched to track down the terrorists.

Senior police officials were at the spot to oversee the combing operations.
