"All the station house officers (SHOs) and deputy superintendents of police are directed to hold meeting with local executive magistrates on Tuesday morning, senior superintendent of police (SSP) Rajouri, Yougal Manhas, said in an advisory.

"In their presence, the police is asked to raid all the shops and establishments selling army uniforms and clothes as well as allied material," the advisory said.

He said establishments without having requisite permissions will be seized immediately.

Five army men, including two junior commissioned officers (JCOs), and the father of a soldier was killed in the attack by terrorists who struck at the sprawling camp of the 36 Brigade of the Jammu and Kashmir Light Infantry (JAKLI) on Saturday.

Three heavily armed terrorists were also killed in the operation. While two were gunned down on Saturday, the body of a third terrorist was found on Sunday, army spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Devender Anand said, adding they were in combat gear.

The army spokesperson said that AK-56 rifles, an under barrel grenade launcher, ammunition and grenades were from them. Earlier in the day, Jammu and Kashmir Director General of Police (DGP) SP Vaid had said that four terrorists had been killed.
