Srinagar: A fierce encounter broke out between terrorists and the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel in Jammu and Kashmir on Monday morning.

Reports coming in from the Valley said a gunbattle was underway near a CRPF camp in Srinagar’s Karan Nagar. 23 Battalion of the CRPF was involved in the operation.

Sources told Times Now that terrorists were holed up in a building and one jawan had been injured in the exchange of fire.

PTI reported that the encounter started after a bid by the terrorists to attack the CRPF camp was thwarted by an alert sentry.

“The sentry at the camp noticed two suspicious persons at around 4.30 am, carrying back packs and weapons. He challenged them and opened fire as well,” a spokesman of the CRPF said.

The militants fled from the spot, the spokesman said, adding searches were launched soon after to track down the ultras.

The incident came just two days after Jaish-e-Mohammad militants attacked an Army camp in Sunjwan area of Jammu, killing six people including five soldiers. Three terrorists were also gunned down in the attack.
