Earlier a joint team of Police, RR and CRPF launched a cordon and search operation on specific input about the presence of terrorists in the village said a police officer.
The police officer also added that “as the joint team of searching party cordoned the suspected spot, the hiding terrorists fired upon them, fire was retaliated and a encounter started.”
This is the fourth encounter in the last 48 hours in Kashmir. Earlier, in three encounters, security forces claimed they have killed 5 terrorists and recovered huge cache of arms and ammunition.
