Three terrorists were neutralised after an encounter broke out between security forces and militants in Kupwara’s Kalaroos area on Wednesday. They were reported to be hidden in the area.
Gunshots are being exchanged in the North Kashmiri district. One policeman got injured in the encounter.
This comes a few days after militants had attacked a CRPF camp in South Kashmir's Pulwama district but fled after the security forces retaliated. There were no casualties in the incident however, firing was halted after the CRPF team had retaliated.
