Security forces shot dead a Hizbul Mujahideen terrorist and seized some weapons after a fierce encounter in Jammu and Kashmir's Pulwama this morning. The police said the security forces launched a cordon and search operation based in intelligence inputs about some terrorists hiding at Dalipora in Pulwama, 32 km from Srinagar.
The terrorist has been identified as Sabir Ahmad Dar of the Hizbul Mujahideen.
The police said the terrorists fired at the approaching security forces, following which they retaliated. The security forces have surrounded the area and are looking for any remaining terrorist who could be hiding in the area.
The encounter happened less than 24 hours after a police officer was killed by terrorists in Sopore on Friday night.
