The abducted jawan has been identified as Aurangzeb, a resident of Poonch district. The incident took place in Pulwama district of south Kashmir. A police investigation is under way.
There has been a dip in stone pelting and street violence in the Valley since the ceasefire announced by the Centre. However security forces have come under attack from terrorists on several occasions.
In Pulwama itself, terrorists attacked a CRPF party at Gangoo earlier today. In the last two days, encounters have taken place in Bandipora and Shopian. A couple of infiltration attempts too were foiled near the LoC and several terrorists neutralised.
