The other encounter broke out when the security forces had launched a cordon and search operation at Khagund in Anantnag district’s Verinag area following information about the presence of militants there. The search operation turned into an encounter after militants opened fire on the security forces, who retaliated. The security personnel also recovered a pistol and a grenade. One policeman was also injured and taken to a hospital.
Earlier last week, five civilians were killed by terrorists in Jammu and Kashmir in separate incidents on Tuesday and Thursday.
