One terrorist has been killed in an encounter currently underway in South Kashmir’s Pulwama district, police said on Monday.
“One terrorist killed. Operation in progress,” the police said.
On Sunday, a joint team of the police and the security forces cordoned off the Gundipora area and launched a search operation on the basis of specific information about the presence of terrorists.
As the security forces zeroed in on the spot where terrorists were hiding they came under a heavy volume of fire that triggered the ongoing encounter.
