Although the gun battle is going on in Bajaad village in the Sinoo area encounter site in Gandoh tehsil of Bhaderwah sub-division of Doda district, security forces have confirmed the elimination of three terrorists.

"Based on specific intelligence inputs, a joint operation of the Indian Army with Jammu and Kashmir Police was launched in the Gandoh, Bhaderwah Sector of Doda district. Contact has been established with the terrorists and a firefight is in progress," the Army's White Knight Corps posted on its official social media account.

"Two more terrorists have been gunned down. Additional Director General of Police (ADGP) Jammu Zone Anand Jain on the spot along with Deputy Inspector General (DIG) Doda and Senior Superintendent of Police Doda. Details awaited," a police spokesperson said amidst the encounter.

Reports said that the encounter started in Bajaad village in the Gandoh area around 9.50 am amid intensified search and cordon operation by the police along with the Army and Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) following twin terrorist attacks in the hilly district on June 11 and 12.
