Srinagar/UNI: A militant was on Monday killed in an encounter which ensued after security forces launched a Cordon and Search Operation (CASO) in south Kashmir district of Kulgam.

Official sources said that following specific information about presence of militants, a joint CASO was launched by Special Operations Group (SOG) of J&K Police, Army and CRPF at Aharbal in Kulgam on Monday.

However, they said when security forces were moving towards the target area, militants hiding there fired at them with automatic weapons. ''The security forces retaliated, ensuing in an encounter,'' they said, adding one unidentified militant was killed in the initial exchange of fire.

They said the operation was still going on when the reports last came in. ''Security forces have been rushed to the area to foil any attempts by militants to escape,'' they said.

They said additional security forces have also been deployed in adjoining areas to maintain law and order.
