Srinagar, Mar 4 (UNI): An encounter has ensued between militants and security forces at Tral in south Kashmir district of Pulwama, official sources said here on Monday.

They said following specific information about presence of militants, a joint team of Special Operations Group (SOG) of state police, Army and CRPF launched a Cordon and Search Operation (CASO) at Mir Mohalla, Tral.

However, they said when security forces were moving towards a particular area, militants hiding there, fired at them with automatic weapons. “The security forces retaliated, ensuing in an encounter,” they said, adding the exchange of fire was going on when the reports last came in.

They said two to three militants are believed to be trapped in the area. “Additional security forces have been rushed to the area to foil any attempts by militants to escape,” they added.
