Five soldiers, including a junior officer of the Indian Army, were killed during a fierce encounter between security forces and heavily armed terrorist in Poonch district of Jammu and Kashmir, India on Monday, reports NDTV.

Citing sources NDTV reported that a heavy gunfight was underway in the Surankote area with at least four to five heavily armed terrorists who crossed into the country a few days ago.

The anti-insurgency operation was launched in a village close to Dera Ki Gali in the early hours following intelligence inputs about their presence, they said.

The hiding terrorists fired on the search parties resulting in a fierce gunfight and critical injuries to a Junior Commissioned Officer (JCO) and four other soldiers. They died from their injuries.

The encounter with the terrorists was going on and further details are awaited, a defence spokesperson said.

Officials said there were reports about the presence of a group of heavily-armed terrorists in the Chamrer forest, after they managed to sneak from across the Line of Control a few days ago.
