Sinagar, September 13
An encounter between terrorists and security forces began in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama district on Sunday, officials said.
The gunfight between terrorists and security forces took place after a joint team of the police and the army cordoned off Parigam area and launched a search operation on the basis of specific information about presence of terrorists there.
As the security forces zeroed in on the spot where terrorists were hiding, they came under a heavy volume of fire and retaliated.
“Joint search operation was launched today (Sunday) afternoon based on Jammu & Kashmir Police inputs,” the army said.
“Terrorists fired at the security forces when the cordon was being laid, turning it into an encounter. Firefight ensued. Joint operation is in progress.”—IANS
