Authorities however are yet to confirm the death of any terrorists today, waiting for the bodies to be recovered.

Extreme caution needs to be exercised in removing the bodies amid concerns of booby traps and explosives. Indian forces don’t want to take undue risks and seem to be in favour of wrapping up operations in daylight tomorrow, sources say.
