Two militants have been killed by security forces in an encounter in Shopian in Jammu and Kashmir. According to the news agency ANI, the security forces have killed two terrorists in the encounter of Shopian. Police of Kashmir zone said that they have not been identified yet.
Let me tell you that Jaish Kamadar Sajjad Afghani was killed in an encounter with security forces in Rawalpora, Shopian last week. 36 Chinese-made steel bullets recovered from Afghani have raised the ears of the security forces. Subsequently, the security forces have further strengthened the bullet proofing capability of their vehicles, bunkers and jawans. These steel bullets have the ability to pierce the bullet-proof jackets of ordinary bullet-proof vehicles and jawans.
Officials said that in the vehicles and jawans now being deployed especially in South Kashmir, a layer of security has been increased. Bullets and other explosives commonly used in AK series rifles are being attacked by Chinese technology with a layer of hard steel core. This increases the ability to penetrate tablets.
Cartridges recently found near Jem Commander Sajjad Afghani, called Armor Piercing (AP), have been found to be manufactured from hardened steel or tungsten carbide.The first incident of use of steel-fired cartridges came on the eve of New Year 2017, when Jaish terrorists carried out a suicide attack on the CRPF camp at Lethpora in Pulwama district of South Kashmir.
