As per news report of NDTV, A red alert has been sounded in the Union Territory following the encounter near Sunjwan army camp on the outskirts of the city, which averted a major attack with the gunning down of both the terrorists, who were armed with suicide vests and large quantity of arms and ammunition. A Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) officer was also killed and nine others including two policemen were injured as security forces engaged the terrorists after they attacked a bus carrying the paramilitary personnel in the early hours of Friday. Director General of Police (DGP) Dilbag Singh had said the two terrorists were part of a suicide squad of Pakistan-based JeM and their infiltration could be a "big conspiracy" to sabotage the prime minister's visit to Jammu and Kashmir on the occasion of National Panchayati Raj day on Sunday.
