Srinagar: Indian Army along with other security agencies has successfully finished an Operation, named Op Hadipura to eliminate the terrorists hiding in the Sopore-Rafiabad area of Baramulla District in Jammu & Kashmir.

Over the past few weeks there has been constant information of the movement of a terrorist group in Sopore-Rafiabad area of Baramulla District.

On 19 June 2024, specific intelligence was received through Jammu Kashmir Police that two terrorists were holed up in a house in Hadipura village of Rafiabad area. Consequently, Indian Army, JKP, and CRPF launched a joint operation, swiftly cordoning off the area.

Following standard procedures, civilians were safely evacuated from adjacent houses, and the area was secured. The target house was thoroughly cordoned off and on the search being commenced, terrorists opened fire on the security forces. In the ensuing firefight, two terrorists were neutralized.

The killed terrorists have been identified as Usman and Umar, both of Pakistan Origin and associated with LeT. Usman has been active in the Kashmir Valley since 2020. Significant quantities of weapons and ammunition have been recovered after the operation.

Elimination of these terrorists marks another major success for the security forces. Over the past few months, the security forces have maintained a high operational tempo, resulting in some major achievements. The success is also attributed to the complete cooperation of the Kashmiri people.
