In the Kulgam district of Jammu and Kashmir, one terrorist was killed in a fight with security troops, Kashmir police said Tuesday morning. Kashmir Police say that they have found evidence against him, such as weapons and ammunition, in his hands. We are trying to find out who the attacker is and where he or she comes from. There is a search going on. We are waiting for more information.
Officials say that the National Investigation Agency (NIA) searched several places in Jammu and Kashmir on Monday in connection with a terror-related case the agency opened last year. In May of this year, the NIA searched three places in Kashmir Valley in connection with the terror plot case. They found books and digital devices that could be used to prove their guilt.

The searches were done at the homes of sympathizers and cadres, hybrid terrorists, and Over Ground Workers (OGWs) who were linked to the newly formed branches and affiliates of banned Pakistan-backed terror groups like Laskhar-e-Toiba (LeT), Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM), Hizb-ul-Mujahideen (HM), Al-Badr, and Al-Qaeda.
As part of the NIA’s ongoing investigations into the activities of recently formed terrorist groups like The Resistance Front (TRF), United Liberation Front Jammu and Kashmir (ULFJK), Mujahideen Gazwat-ul-Hind (MGH), Jammu and Kashmir Freedom Fighters (JKFF), Kashmir Tigers, and PAFF (People’s Anti-Fascist Front), raids and searches were done all day in Srinagar and Budgam districts.
The NIA said that 51 places were searched in relation with the terror conspiracy case, which was opened on its own by the agency on June 21 of last year. The case is about a plot that was made both in person and online, as well as plans by banned terrorist groups to use sticky bombs, improvised explosive devices (IEDs), and small guns to carry out violent attacks in Jammu and Kashmir.
According to a study by the NIA, cadres and workers of the newly formed groups were involved in collecting and distributing sticky and magnetic bombs, IEDs, money, drugs, weapons, and ammunition. In Jammu and Kashmir, they are spreading acts of terror, bloodshed, and subversion.
Investigations have also shown that operatives and cadres in the Kashmir valley are getting weapons, ammo, explosives, and drugs from operatives and cadres in Pakistan using drones. “These operatives are using social media to connect with cadres and workers in India,” the NIA said.
