Terrorist killed in Srinagar encounter, firing on


A terrorist has been killed in an ongoing encounter between terrorists and security forces in J&K’s Srinagar district, officials said on Thursday.

“One unidentified terrorist killed. One AK rifle alongwith ammunition recovered. Search going on,” a police official said.

The gunfight between terrorists and security forces took place after a joint team of the police and the army cordoned off the area and launched a search operation on the basis of specific information about presence of terrorists.

As the security forces zeroed in on the spot where terrorists were hiding, they came under a heavy volume of fire and retaliated, triggering the encounter.
