Security forces launched a cordon and search operation in Sharshali village of Pulwama following information about the presence of militants there, the officials said.

In the retaliatory firing, two militants have been killed. A police spokesman said that two unidentified militants have so far been killed in the gunfight.
The operation was going on when the last reports were received.
Meanwhile police asked TV Channels to be responsible in reporting ongoing encounter in Beighpora, Awantipora, Pulwama where a top commander is believed to be trapped.
Operation at Beigpora Awantipur is going on. Any Speculative reporting unconfirmed stuff having law and order bearings is highly irresponsible on the part of some channels. They are advised to hold their guns please.
