Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar on Wednesday said there has been a rise in the number of “encounters” in Jammu and Kashmir, but not terror attacks.

Parrikar said: “There is an increase in encounters”.

The minister was asked about the increase in the number of militant attacks in Jammu and Kashmir.

On June 25, militants attacked a bus with CRPF personnel killing eight and injuring over 20. Two militants were later killed by forces.

On Tuesday evening, one unidentified militant was killed in a gunfight with forces in Lolab area of north Kashmir’s Kupwara district.
