An encounter broke out between police personnel and militants at DH Pora in South Kashmir’s Kulgam district, the police said on Saturday.
This is the second encounter in Kulgam this month. Four militants were killed in an earlier operation last week.
Security forces received information about the presence of militants and launched a cordon and search operation in the Damhal Hanjipora area of South Kashmir, a police official said. He said that militants fired upon them as they were conducting searches in the area, to which the security forces retaliated.
