Encounter in Kashmir's Pulwama, search on for militants

Encounter in Kashmir's Pulwama, search on for militants

Clashes erupted in the area soon after forces launched a cordon and search operation in the village. The report said that militants opened fire on the Army during the operation, prompting retaliation from the forces which triggered the gunbattle.

A police officer while confirming the encounter said three militants are believed to be trapped inside the area. However, the operation was stopped due to darkness to avoid any casualty, the sources said. "Security forces had sealed the entire area after reinforcement was rushed there from nearby camps", he said.

United's performances during this season's tournament suggested their players were not sure how much they wanted to win it either. Ajax's mix of home-grown talent and bargain basement - by current European standards - signings is also familiar.

Students of the local Higher Secondary School took to the streets and started pelting stones at the security forces demanding the release of their fellow students arrested for stone pelting by the police. The encounter reportedly broke out between the Indian Army and the Lashkar terrorists in Pulwama on Tuesday night. Dujana is accused in several terror attack on security forces. The trend, which emerged from south Kashmir in 2014, gained momentum across Kashmir following the killing of Hizbul Mujahideen poster boy Burhan Wani by security forces in July a year ago. However, the militants managed to escape.
