An encounter broke out between joint security forces and terrorists on Tuesday morning in the Gusoo village at the Pulwama district of Jammu and Kashmir (J&K). According to the latest updates, a terrorist has been gunned down in the operation, which is still going on.

Around two to three terrorists are believed to be still trapped in the south Kashmir village.

Kashmir zone police tweeted earlier on this day, “ #Encounter has started at #Goosu area of  #Pulwama. Police and security forces are on the job. Further details shall follow. @JmuKmrPolice”

A police official said that a joint team of the J&K Police and the Indian Army’s 53 Rashtriya Rifles (RR) and the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) had laid a cordon-and-search-operation in Gusso area. When the joint security team cordoned the suspected spot, the hiding terrorists fired upon the search party. The fire was retaliated upon by the armed forces, triggering the encounter.

However, the official clarified that terrorists were asked to surrender first but they instead fired upon the party, which was then retaliated.

Sources in the police said that two to three terrorists are believed to be trapped in the cordon and in initial firing, a jawan and a police personnel had got injured. The operation is continuing.
