Srinagar, Oct 10 (IANS) Police said on Monday a group of two to three militants were trapped in a building of the Jammu and Kashmir Entrepreneurship Development Institute (JKEDI) complex near Pampore town of Pulwama district.

“The militants were trapped inside a building in the JKEDI complex near Pampore town,” a senior police officer here said.
