At least four Indian soldiers and a Kashmiri youth were killed in a gun battle against Kashmiri fighters in the Pulwama district, where 41 troops were killed by a suicide bomber last Thursday.

Megastar Amitabh Bachchan will be donating Rs 5 lakh each to the families of CRPF troppers who died in the terror attack in Jammu and Kashmir's Pulwama district. He was cornered by Security Forces along with two more terrorists at Pinglan in an encounter that started in the wee hours this morning.

One civilian was also killed according to local news reports.

The four Indian Army personnel belonged to the 55 Rashtriya Rifles and have been identified as Major VS Dhoundiyal, Havaldar Sheo Ram, Sepoy Ajay Kumar and Sepoy Hari Singh.

On that day, 42 Indian paramilitary personnel were killed when a 20-year-old suicide bomber rammed his explosives-laden vehicle into one of the buses in an army convoy carrying the soldiers.

The strike in Kashmir is by far the worst since Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi came to power in 2014 and has put pressure on the government to act against Pakistan, which it blamed for the deadly assault in Kashmir.

The firing resumed around 9 am as the forces assessed that two or three Jaish terrorists were still hiding in the area.

That being said, the target of the mission, Kamran (suspected mastermind of the February 14 attack) was shot dead along with another terrorist- Ghazi Rasheed.

The kingdom said it wanted to de-escalate tensions between the nations, which had spread beyond harsh diplomatic exchanges to threats against Kashmiri Muslims living elsewhere in India and calls for cricketing boycotts. "We stand with the families of our jawans, we will always be there for them", he said.

Pakistan has warned India against linking it to the attack without an investigation, saying that it was part of New Delhi's "known rhetoric and tactics" to divert global attention from human rights violations in Kashmir.

India has said it also has Washington's support to defend itself against cross-border attacks.
