An army personnel was martyred while two terrorists killed in an anti-militancy operation in Bandipora's Panar forest area in Jammu and Kashmir on Thursday. 

The operation is still underway, police said. 

 The Centre had announced a ceasefire in the month of Ramzan but terrorists have only intensified attacks ion the security forces in the last couple of weeks. 

 Last night, a policeman and his minor sister were injured when suspected militants barged into their house and fired at them in Shopian district. Militants entered the house of the police personnel and opened indiscriminate fire on the residents, a police spokesperson said.

 Asked about any increase in militant recruitment since the unilateral ceasefire was announced by the Centre at the beginning of the holy month of Ramzan, a top Army official said on Tuesday that there are no indications as such at the moment.

 General Officer Commanding (GoC) of the Srinagar-based Chinar Corps, Lieutenant General A K Bhatt said there are no indications of an increase in militant recruitment during the unilateral ceasefire by the Centre in Kashmir, but Pakistan is still trying to push ultras from across the LoC into the valley

 He also noted that people of Kashmir have responded well to the Centre's announcement of non-initiation of combat operations (NICO) during Ramzan and some peace has been achieved in the valley.

 Since the ceasefire, some peace has been achieved and the public has responded well to it. We will be happy if there is no civil casualty in these 30 days of Ramzan, he said.
