Srinagar, Sep 4 : A gunfight broke out between terrorists and security forces in North Kashmir’s Pulwama district on Friday. This is the second encounter in Kashmir in less than 12 hours.
The encounter started after a joint team of the police and the army cordoned off the Babhoora area in Pulwama on the basis of specific information about terrorists hiding there.
As the security forces zeroed in on the spot where the terrorists were hiding they came under heavy fire that triggered the encounter.
“Encounter has started at Babhoora area of Pulwama. The police and security forces are on the job,” police said.
Earlier in the day, an encounter broke out in North Kashmir’s Baramulla district in which one army officer sustained injuries and one terrorist was killed. The encounter was still going on.
