The Pulwama encounter commenced when a joint team of army, CRPF and SOG men surrounded the Panjra Lassipora village following the inputs about the presence of militants on Thursday evening, said a police official.

“While the searches were being conducted, the militants hiding in the area fired upon the forces,” said the official, adding that the fire was retaliated, leading to an encounter.

He said that one of the militants was killed in the initial exchange of fire.  The operation, however, continued till early Friday morning and ended with the killing of four militants, said the official.
