All the terrorists have carried out attacks for the People's Anti-Fascist Front (PAFF), an affiliate of the Jaish-e-Mohammed.

A massive search operation is under way in the forests of Rajouri and Poonch to track the terrorists down, sources said. Officials have narrowed down on several suspects and many have been questioned on their links with the three terrorists.

The PAFF is a Jaish-backed terror group, that also claimed responsibility for the attack on an Army vehicle that killed four soldiers in Poonch in December last year.

The terrorist attack on May 4 took place near Shahsitar in the Poonch district. Five IAF personnel received bullet injuries, and were evacuated to the nearest military hospital. During the treatment, one of them succumbed to the injuries.

Terrorists were believed to have fled into a forest after the attack.
