Even as police released sketches of terrorists involved in the Reasi and Doda attacks, fear gripped residents of Jammu province after repeated terror incidents in different areas during the last four days.

An alert has been sounded in almost all 10 districts of Jammu province amid reports that some terrorists have managed to sneak into this side to disrupt peace ahead of the Shri Amarnath Yatra. On Wednesday evening, police issued an advisory, urging residents of the Jammu region to stay vigilant regarding the movement of suspicious individuals and objects.

The advisory was issued following intelligence inputs suggesting the possibility of a terror threat in parts of Rajouri and Jammu districts.

No evidence was found on the ground, and technological evidence was analyzed for four hours without any significant findings.

Search operations continue in different parts of the Jammu region

Security forces are conducting extensive search operations across different districts of Jammu, with a focus on Doda and Reasi.

The goal is to track down and neutralize terrorists responsible for recent attacks in Reasi, Doda, and Kathua districts.

Over the past four days, terrorists struck at four locations in Reasi, Kathua, and Doda districts. These attacks resulted in the deaths of nine pilgrims and a CRPF jawan, as well as injuries to seven security personnel and several civilians.

In an encounter with security forces in Kathua, two suspected Pakistani terrorists were killed. A significant cache of arms and ammunition was recovered from them.

Army, police, and paramilitary forces have resumed search operations in various areas, including Kota Top in Gandoh and Chattagalla in Doda district. These regions witnessed separate gunfights with terrorists earlier this week.

Despite the efforts, there has been no fresh contact with the fleeing terrorists. Search operations are also underway in Reasi and the adjoining Rajouri district. Nowshera in Rajouri and adjoining Poonch are also being searched.

Security forces remain on high alert in Kathua, Samba, and Jammu districts due to intelligence inputs about a potential terror threat.
