At least one terrorist was killed and two army jawans injured in an encounter between terrorists and security forces in south Kashmir's Shopian district on Monday.
The army and the Special Operations Group (SOG) of Jammu and Kashmir police cordoned off Wangam village around midnight after receiving information of the presence of terrorists in the area.
The deceased terrorist was identified as Sadam Mir of Chatripora village of the Shopian district.
People protested on the streets and held pro-freedom demonstrations after the gunfight ended, according to Greater Kashmir.
Pakistan also violated ceasefire in Mendhar, located in the Poonch district of the state, on Monday. Indian troops retaliated to the firing effectively and there were no reports of any casualties on the Indian side.
Firing by Pakistan has claimed the lives of eight Indian soldiers and eight civilians across the International Border and Line of Control in the past two weeks.
The neighbouring country has violated ceasefire over 60 times since the Indian Army carried out surgical strikes on terror launch pads across the LoC on September 29. Indian security forces have retaliated to the ceasefire violations and the firing, killing several Pakistani troops.
Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh warned Pakistan on Sunday saying: "Look us in the eye and fight us. We will emerge victorious... Not only can we fight you in our backyard, we have also gone into your homes and defeated you."
