Srinagar/UNI: An encounter ensued between militants and security forces on Saturday after a Cordon and Search Operation (CASO) was launched in south Kashmir district of Pulwama.

Official sources said that following specific information about the presence of militants, a joint CASO was launched by Special Operations Group (SOG) of J&K police, Army and CRPF at Dangarpora in Pulwama on Saturday morning.

However, they said when security forces were moving towards a particular area, militants hiding there, fired at them with automatic weapons.

“The security forces retaliated ensuing in an encounter,” they said.

They said additional security forces were rushed to further cordon off the area to foil any attempts by militants to escape.
