According to the information received from the police, about 10 days before Eid was plotting a terrorist attack on the day of Jung-e-Badr.
Security forces had an input of a major terrorist attack that day. Security forces were on alert, so the terrorists could not attack that day. The search operation was also on. According to IG Kashmir Vijay Kumar, the police imposed a block on getting the information. Yesterday on Wednesday night, when the militant came out with this car, he was stopped by the police.

If the terrorist did not stop again, the police opened fire. This time the terrorist took advantage of the darkness and fled the car. The police saw the car from a distance and upon seeing the suspect, cordoned off the area and called the bomb squad.
