Two days after nine people died after the bus they were travelling in was shot at by terrorists in Jammu and Kashmir’s Raesi district, a person was killed in a terrorist attack on a house in the Union Territory’s Kathua district, close to the International Border. A terrorist has also been killed.

In a post on X, Union Minister Jitendra Singh, who is the MP from Udhampur, said, “I am in continuous online contact with DC (district collector) #Kathua Sh Rakesh Minhas in the wake of terrorist attack on a house in village Saida in Hiranagar sector close to the International Border. I am also in touch with SSP Kathua Sh Anayat Ali Choudhary who is on the spot.”

“The owner of the house that was attacked (name not to be disclosed) is also in touch on mobile phone. Joint police & para military operation is going on. One terrorist neutralised so far. I and my office are in constant touch and keeping a close watch on the development,” he added.

After the terrorists attacked the house, a joint operation was launched by security forces to track them down, and one of the attackers was killed.
