Encounter in September
Police in september,
undertook an encounter,
raided a residential apartment
in search of terror suspect.
A gun battle followed,
lot of blood flowed,
police lost a brave officer
terrorists lost important cadre.

What about lives lost?
A father of ailing son, two
sons of hapless mom!
These are also human lives,
in these turbulent times,
what if we are wrong?
