"A JCO and four Indian Army personnel were critically injured in the subsequent shootout during the continuing engagement with militants." "The seriously injured were transported to the nearest medical institution, unfortunately they died as a result of their injuries," army spokeswoman Lt Col Devender Anand said. He went on to say that more troops had been dispatched to the region.

According to the army, those slain in the event were Jaswinder Singh, Mandeep Singh, Gajjan Singh, Saraj Singh, and Vaisakh H.

According to him, the search escalated into an encounter after the terrorists opened fire on the security personnel, who reacted. The firefight resulted in the death of one terrorist and the injury of one police officer.
