Complete synergy between security forces and freedom of operation given to the services resulted in the neutralisation of 311 terrorists this year, former DGMO and 15 Corps Commander Lieutenant General Anil Bhatt said.
After his troops foiled a Pakistani Border Action Team (BAT) attack on Indian posts in the Naugam sector and killed two terrorists, Lieutenant General Bhatt said: “The forces have been successful in killing 248 terrorists including top terrorist commanders along with the apprehension of 58 of them. Five of the terrorists have surrendered before us. So, till December 31 morning, security forces have been successful in neutralising 311 terrorists in our area of operations.”
Lauding his troops for the operation, Lieutenant General Bhatt said the credit for the success of forces should be given to the synergy between the Army, Jammu and Kashmir Police and paramilitary forces operating in the Kashmir valley.
