Srinagar: An encounter broke out between militants and security forces in the Sopore area of north Kashmir’s Baramulla district on Sunday.

It is a joint operation by the police and the army.
“Joint Operation was launched today early morning on @JmuKmrPolice inputs. Cordon was laid & contact established. Firefight ensued. Joint Operation in progress,” the army said in a statement.
