An encounter broke out between militants and security forces in Kupwara area of Jammu and Kashmir on Tuesday. The security forces have gunned down one militant.
The security forces had besieged a house in Nagri village where a Hizbul militant was believed to be hiding. This led to a gunbattle between the two sides. Security forces surrounded the house after receiving information about militants hiding there, police said.
This comes just two days after the Pampore attack in which 8 CRPF men were killed and 22 others were injured during an encounter between the security forces and militants. Last week, 7 militants were killed in 3 encounters in the district.
