Indian Army and militant gunfight in Jammu and Kashmir's Budgam, JCO reportedly killed

Srinagar: A junior commissioned officer (JCO) of the Indian Army was killed on Monday in a gunfight with militants in Jammu and Kashmir's Budgam district.

Following information about the presence of militants in Drung village, the security forces commenced a search operation shortly after Sunday midnight, police sources said.

"As the cordon was being tightened, the hidden militants fired at the security forces injuring Subedar Raj Kumar who later succumbed to his injuries," the police sources said.

Defence ministry sources, however, said a patrol party of the Army was fired upon by the militants and the JCO died in the exchange of firing between the militants and the security forces.
