Another encounter was reported from Awantipora district on Tuesday morning.

A gunfight was reported to be underway between security forces and militants in south Kashmir’s Tral district as well. An official told Greater Kashmir:

As the forces approached the suspected spot, the hiding militants opened fire, triggering off an encounter.
