Srinagar: A soldier and a civilian were injured in an ongoing encounter between militants and security forces in Jammu and Kashmir’s Kulgam district on Friday, police said.
“One army jawan and one civilian got injured in the encounter. Search in the area is still going on,” police said.
The firefight at Redwani area broke out after a joint team of security forces, which got an input about the presence of militants in that area, cordoned off the area but came under fire from the hiding militants.
There have been a series of encounters between militants and security forces across Kashmir over the last few months, in which many militants and their commanders have been eliminated.
Most of the operations have been jointly conducted by security forces on the basis of specific intelligence inputs.
