Gunbattle in Jammu and Kashmir's Anantnag which killed six militants was a 'surgical operation', says army

Srinagar: The Indian Army said on Friday that the gunfight in which six militants were killed in Jammu and Kashmir's Anantnag district was a surgical operation.

Lieutenant General AK Bhatt, the Commander of the 15th corps, termed the killing of six militants, including Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) commander Azad Malik as a "surgical operation".

Talking to the media in north Kashmir's Baramulla town, Bhatt said the operation was very prompt and precise.

He said the operation was successful as the forces did not suffer any harm.

The corps commander said whoever will resort to the gun will be eliminated.

"There are more militants in south Kashmir than in north. The militants are terrorising the people of Kashmir," he said.
