Security forces have gunned down four terrorists in a fierce gun battle on Jammu-Srinagar National Highway in Nagrota area, here on the city outskirts.

Security forced had received inputs about the movement of terrorists from the Samba sector towards the Nagrota toll plaza.

Two jawans of the special operations group of Jammu and Kashmir police also received injuries and were undergoing treatment in the Government Medical College hospital in Jammu.

The gunbattle erupted at 4.20am local time (22:50 GMT on Wednesday) after the truck in which the suspected rebels were travelling was intercepted by security personnel near a toll plaza, paramilitary force spokesman Moses Dinakaran said. Mukesh Singh said the terrorists had infiltrated to launch a big strike inside the Indian territory in the coming days. The police recovered 11 AK-47 rifles, three pistols, 29 grenades, explosives and other devices, including mobile phones and medicines, with Pakistani markings.

The terrorists were planning "something big" on the anniversary of the 26/11 Mumbai terror attack, the sources added. "However, we are investigating", Singh said.

He further wrote that the area is being sanitized. The IGP over the public address system asked the terrorists to surrender but they continued firing at the security forces. This is similar to previous cases in the area, same modus operandi except for the fact that the truck used a fake registration number. We are providing them collective security and they are being put up in secure areas.

Modi added that the security forces' action was an example of the "utmost bravery" and professionalism.

While addressing a press conference, IG of Jammu Zone Mukesh Singh had yesterday said that they were suspecting a "big terror attack" ahead of DDC election in the Valley.

The operation was later joined by the Army while in the initial phase of the gunfight, two SOG personnel were injured who were later hospitalized.

The statement said that the toxic "Hindutva ideology, preached and practiced by the RSS-BJP mix", has resulted in the systematic targeting of Kashmiri youth through extra-judicial killings, torture in custody, enforced disappearances, and incarcerations.
