On Saturday, April 4, three militants were shot and killed by security forces in Jammu and Kashmir's Kulgam district. In addition, one army jawan was reportedly wounded in the engagement. As of Saturday morning (local time), the encounter is still underway between security forces and militants in the Manzgam area of Kulgam.

Advice

Individuals in Jammu and Kashmir are advised to monitor developments, remain vigilant for militant activity, and adhere to all instructions issued by local authorities and their home governments.

Some foreign governments advise their citizens against travel to parts of Kashmir, notably including areas along the Line of Control (LoC), due to the significant risk of violence.
