The gun battle erupted at Cheyan Devsar in South Kashmir's Kulgam district during a cordon and a search operation launched jointly by the Army and Police in the area during the wee hours, following an input about the presence of militants.

The other militants has been identified as a “Hybrid militant” Shahbaz Shah of Kulgam and was active for two weeks, police said Haider, a Pakistan national, was active for more than two years in north Kashmir's Bandipora and had recently shifted his base to South.
