Encounter breaks out between terrorists, security forces in J&K's Kupwara

JAMMU: A fierce gunbattle is currently underway between the security forces and a group of heavily armed terrorists in Jammu and Kashmir's Kupwara.
According to ANI, the gunbattle, which is currently on in Batpora in Kupwara's Handwara, began following specific intelligence inputs about the presence of some terrorists in the area.

The security forces then launched a massive search and combing operation to flush out the terrorists hiding in the area.
“As the cordon around the hiding militants was tightened, they fired at the security forces, triggering the gunfight which is going on,” an official said.
No casualty has been reported so far and the firing from both sides is still on. 
In another incident on Wednesday, a group of unidentified terrorists hurled a hand grenade at a police post in Watergam area of Sopore district.
Giving a befitting reply, the security personnel retaliated with firing and simultaneously launched a search operation in the area.
The incidents came weeks after a CRPF jawan was injured after terrorists hurled grenade on patrol party in Hyderpora area of Budgam district.
