Army jawan martyred, 3 terrorists gunned down in J&K's Pulwama encounter

After Jaish-e-Mohammad chief Maulana Masood Azhar's nephew Talha Rashid was killed in an encounter at Pulwama in southern part of Kashmir on Tuesday, IGP, Jammu and Kashmir Police, Munir Khan said that a M4 rifle, besides two AK-47 rifles, were recovered from the encounter site.

The issue of how these weapons have reached militants in Kashmir will be taken up with Embassies concerned through proper channels.

"It is for the first time that M4 carbine has been recovered in Kashmir. We only want that these routes to be constructed fast", he said. "It also needs a different class of ammunition whereas AK47 which we are using as the main weapon is a very rugged and effective weapon in the ranges we operate in", he said. The M4 rifle is hard to carry, maintain and hide.

Raju said that the use of M4 or other new weapons will not alter the dynamics of militancy in Kashmir, and these were being used as "psychological warfare to target the forces and to recruit more youth".

An army soldier Sham Sundar of 44 RR sustained serious bullet injuries in an attack at Aglar Kandi village of the district, he was referred to army hospital in Srinagar where he succumbed, police said.

M4 carbine rifle is a premier rifle used by North Atlantic Treaty Organisation and by the militaries of country close to the US.

"The slain militants included two Pakistani nationals and a local".
