The commanders of the COBRA unit were assailed in the IED blast after which an encounter started between the two resulting in the killing of three naxals.

Some arms and ammunition were also recovered from the site. However, the death toll is also likely to rise as several security personnel were also wounded in a fierce gun battle, which was still raging.

According to reports, the CRPF officials were killed in a surprise attack after which both the sides exchanged fire for few minutes. Three naxalites were also neutralised by the security officials.

The jawans belonged to the 205th COBRA battalion and were deployed in the state for conducting anti-naxal operations.

This is one of the biggest casualties of the elite COBRA unit which has been raised by the CRPF for undertaking special jungle warfare operations.

Srinagar: Former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chief Mehbooba Mufti on Friday alleged that she has been “illegally detained yet again” and denied permission to visit a party leader in Pulwama district.

She also alleged that her daughter Iltija has been placed under house arrest.

“I’ve been illegally detained yet again. Since 2 days, J&K administration has refused to allow me to visit party leader
Waheed Ur Rehman’s family in Pulwama. He was arrested on baseless charges. Even my daughter placed under house arrest (sic),” Mufti said in a tweet.

“Their cruelty knows no bounds. Waheed was arrested on baseless charges & I am not allowed to even console his family. Even my daughter Iltija has been placed under house arrest because she also wanted to visit Waheed’s family (sic),” she added.

The former chief minister will hold a press conference at 3 pm today on various issues. Mehbooba was released on October 14 after being in detention from August 5 last year following the abrogation of the special status of the erstwhile state.

The National Investigation Agency (NIA) had on Wednesday arrested, Waheed Parra, the youth wing president of PDP’s Jammu and Kashmir unit, in connection with a terror case.

Parra, who recently filed his nomination for the District Development Council (DDC) elections from Pulwama in South Kashmir, was being questioned at the NIA headquarters here since Monday for his alleged involvement with the Hizbul Mujahideen terror group.

“Today NIA arrested Waheed Ur Rehman Parra, the youth wing leader of People’s Democratic Party, in connection with the Naveed Babu-Davinder Singh case for supporting Hizbul Mujahideen in conspiracy with the other accused persons,” NIA’s spokesperson had said.
