Srinagar, Jan 5:
The gunfight broke out early today after the forces launched a cordon-and-search-operation in the area following a tip-off about the presence of militants. An encounter broke out between militants and security forces in Pulwama district of Jammu and Kashmir on Saturday, police said.

“As the forces approached the suspected spot, the hiding militants opened fire, triggering a gunfight,” said an official.

He said the search operation turned into an encounter after the militants opened fire at the search party, who retaliated.

The gunfight was on, the official said, adding further details were awaited.

On the other hand, Pakistan forces resorted to heavy mortar shelling and firing along the LoC in #Poonch district of Jammu and Kashmir last night.
