    Conflict Between India, Pakistan Escalates Over Exchange of Airstrikes in Kashmir (106)

    The Indian police officers acted on a tip-off about the Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorist group’s presence in the area.

    Indian journalist Rifat Abdullah has uploaded a heart-wrenching video showing CRPF (Central Reserve Police Force) men break down in tears after the bodies of their colleagues, killed in a gunfight in Langate Hardwara on Friday, were put into a vehicle for transportation.

    At least four Indian security officers were killed and eight more, including a commander of the paramilitary forces, injured in an encounter with terrorists in the Babagund Langate area of Handwara in the Kupwara district of Kashmir on 1 March. 

    An exchange of gunfire broke out at midnight after a joint team of the Indian Army's 22nd Rashtriya Rifle, 92nd Battalion Central Reserve Police Force and local police launched an operation, having received a lead to a Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) terrorist sojourn in the area. When the officers went to retrieve the terrorists’ bodies, one of the militants, believed to be dead, stood up and fired indiscriminately.
