Meanwhile, a top JeM commander and some other trapped terrorists are reported to have managed to flee after another brief gunfight with a joint team of Police, CRPF and Army at Parigam area of Pulwama in south Kashmir.

The gun battle started at around 5 am near the toll plaza in the Ban area of Nagrota on the Jammu-Srinagar highway on Thursday. The Army also joined the operation.

"A day after four Jaish-e-Mohammed terrorists were killed in Jammu and Kashmir, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on November 20 that security forces had thwarted a major terrorist attack in the Union territory". They were picked at around 3.10 am in LP truck filled with rice bags. Medicines with Pakistan marking show Pakistani origin of these terrorists. Police have got hold of a few phone numbers from the mobile phone recovered with the terrorists and are now probing the device.

"Shakargarh from where the terrorists have infiltrated is the headquarters of the Pakistani Rangers and hence complicity of the Rangers can't be ruled out".

A cavity had been fabricated in the truck with registration number JK01AL1055 to hide terrorists and the arms and ammunition they were carrying. "This will be probed in detail", a top official probing the JeM activities in the area revealed on condition of anonymity.

Many tunnels being used by the infiltrators have been detected by the Border Security Force in the last few years.

At least two Indian police officers were wounded during the clash that took place at a toll plaza in the Nagrota area in Kashmir's southern city, police said. We have recovered 11 AK rifles from the truck, 29 grenades, 3kgs RDX, mobile phone handsets, radio sets, medicines, ration supplies, etc, he added.
