Security forces are fighting a group of terrorists hiding in a house in Padgampora in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama district, officials said today.
Troops launched an anti-terror operation after being tipped off about the presence of terrorists in the area early this morning.
The encounter also follows one in Lucknow in which a suspected ISIS terrorist was killed after a 12-hour gunfight yesterday.
Home Minister Rajnath Singh is expected to make a statement in parliament today about the alleged ISIS module and the anti-terror operation.
