After the firing, the terrorists managed to give security forces a slip taking advantage of mob violence, a police spokesman said.
A civilian was hit by a bullet in the incident, though it was not known whether he was injured in firing by terrorists or the security forces.

Later, it was learnt that one person has received a bullet injury in his shoulder and was admitted to Pulwama district hospital, the spokesman said.
His condition is stated to be stable, he said, adding the police are investigating the matter.
