The area where suspects were spotted is the same where the suspects were seen in the second week of December 2022. Two days later, they had attacked and killed two civilians, as per the Indian Army. They later carried out the deadly attack of Dhangri in which 7 Hindus were killed by terrorists after checking their ID cards in Rajouri.

Yesterday, a similar incident was reported in Pidi village of Kotranka in Rajouri when some suspects knocked on the gate of a village defence committee member, after which he opened fire and the suspects fled.
