Jammu: Five soldiers have been killed and another injured in an encounter with terrorists that broke out early on Friday morning in a thickly vegetated area in Kandi forest of Jammu and Kashmir’s Rajouri district.

Army columns have been conducting intelligence-based operations to flush out a group of terrorists involved in ambush on an Army truck in Tota Gali area of Bhata Dhurian in Jammu region on April 20.

“On specific information about presence of terrorists in the Kandi forest in Rajouri sector, a joint operation was launched on May 3.
