Srinagar/UNI: An encounter ensued between militants and security forces in south Kashmir district of Shopian on Friday.

Official sources said that 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 Hanjipora in Shopian on Friday.

However, 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.

Reinforcement has been rushed from nearby camps and the area has been sealed to foil any attempts by militants to escape.

“Additional security forces have also been deployed in nearby areas to maintain law and order,” the sources added.
