Srinagar/UNI: Militants escaped after a brief encounter with security forces in apple township of Sopore in this north Kashmir district, official sources said on Saturday.

Following specific information about the presence of militants, a joint Cordon and Search Operation (CASO) was launched by the Special Operations Group (SOG) of J&K Police, Army and CRPF at Warpora in Sopore on Friday evening.

They said security forces sealed all the exit points of the area and launched door-to-door searches. However, they said when security forces were moving towards a particular area, militants fired at them with automatic weapons.

The security forces retaliated ensuing in an encounter.

“Additional security forces have been deployed in the adjoining areas to maintain law and order,” they added.

However, no fresh contact was established with the militants and the CASO was called off.
