The terrorists were carrying a huge cache of arms, ammunition. A team of the National Investigation Agency (NIA) reached the spot to probe the incident.

Meanwhile, two SOG men of J&K Police were also injured in a gunfight with a group of militants in Nagrota area.

"In a bid to escape, terrorists tossed grenades at security forces when the truck was intercepted".

"Four terrorists have been neutralized and one Police Constable injured in an encounter at Ban Toll Plaza, Jammu with Police, CRPF and Army", IGP Jammu wrote on his Twitter Handle. Thereafter, the terrorists fled towards the forest area where they were trapped and the encounter broke out. Medicines with Pakistan marking show Pakistani origin of these terrorists.

Director-General Inter-Services Public Relations (DG-ISPR) Major General Babar Iftikhar has said that a RAW officer Anurag Singh was the mastermind of Gwadar PC hotel attack. The driver of the truck is absconding.

The terrorists were planning "something big" on the anniversary of the 26/11 Mumbai terror attack, the sources added. This kind of seizure is unprecedented. "We are providing security to the candidates and they have started going to the field for campaigning from yesterday and there is nothing to fear", he said. "More forces were called in and the encounter went on for 3 hours", the IG said. The area has been sanitized and security has been tightened. He said the police are going to thoroughly investigate how these terrorists entered inside the Indian territory and who were assisting them to execute their sinister designs. Experts believe this to be a significant achievement months after the abrogation of Article 370 and 35A which had also strengthened the security counter-terror grid.

Lt Governor hailed the valour and quick reaction of the security forces in foiling the nefarious design of the terrorists.

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

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.
