Srinagar/UNI: An encounter ensued between militants and security forces during a Cordon and Search Operation (CASO) on Thursday afternoon in the south Kashmir district of Pulwama, where 12 people were injured in a grenade attack on Wednesday evening.

A police spokesman said troops of Rashtriya Rifles (RR), Special Operation Group (SOG) of Jammu and Kashmir police and CRPF launched a joint CASO at village Parigam in Pulwama following a tip off about the presence of militants.

However, when the security forces were moving towards a particular area in the village, militants fired with automatic weapons, the spokesman said adding the fire was retaliated ensuing in an encounter.

The operation was going on when the reports last came in, he said adding further details are awaited.

Meanwhile, additional security forces and police personnel have been deployed in the nearby areas to maintain law and order.
