According to police, a local woman also lost her life during the late night cross firing on Sunday as she was trapped in a house where the terrorists were hiding.
Along with the deceased woman, around six to seven people were stuck inside the house and were later rescued by the security forces.
Police said the terrorists were likely to be members of Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) and arms and ammunition were also recovered from their possession. The search operation is on in the area.
More details are awaited.
