One army officer was injured in an ongoing encounter in North Kashmir's Baramulla district on Friday, army sources said.
The encounter started in Yedipora after a joint team of the police and the army cordoned off the area on the basis of a specific information about terrorists in that area.
As the security forces zeroed in on the spot where the terrorists were hiding they came under a heavy volume of fire that triggered the encounter.
"Encounter has started in the Yedipora Pattan area of Baramulla. Police and security forces are on the job," police said.
