    In less than 24 hours, Indian security personnel have eliminated four suspected terrorists in Kashmir's Shopian district. On Wednesday, the Indian Army allegedly foiled a suspected Border Action Team (BAT) action by the Pakistan Army along the Line of Control (LoC) in the Kupwara district.

    At least two purported terrorists were killed in an intense gunfight in the Shopian district of Jammu and Kashmir on Thursday morning, the northern command of the Indian Army claimed.

    Unconfirmed reports suggest that these two alleged terrorists had an affiliation with the Pakistan-based group Jaish-e-Mohammed. The Indian Army said that it had also recovered AK-47 assault rifles and other incriminating materials from these reported terrorists.

    As per police records, at least 199 terrorists have been killed in 118 counter-terror operations in the valley in 2020 in comparison to 163 terrorists gunned down in 2019.

    Meanwhile, the signatories to the so-called Gupkar Declaration, which vows to "fight for the restoration of Jammu and Kashmir's special status", will be meeting in Srinagar on Thursday afternoon. These leaders, who spent over a year in detention, will be meeting for the first time since they issued the declaration on 4 August 2019, a day before the Indian government scrapped Jammu and Kashmir's special constitutional status.
