The security forces had received information from the intelligence sources about the presence of some hardcore militants including the district commander of the militant outfit Lashkar-a-Taiba in Bandipora district. Based on the analysis of the received inputs, a decision was taken to launch a search and destroy operation on 3rd Oct 2007. Nb Sub Subhash Chandra was made part of the team that was assigned the task of undertaking this operation. Shortly the troops made contact with the dreaded militants who opened fire on being challenged, resulting in a fierce gun battle.
