He had said troops noticed suspicious movement along the LoC and challenged the intruders, leading to a gunfight in which the two militants were killed.

As the security forces tightened cordon around the area, the hiding militants opened fire at the security forces triggering a gunfight. Three AK-47s and other materials were recovered from the killed terrorists. In the encounter that followed, the three terrorists were killed.

Terrorists threw the grenade at a Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) camp near the bank.
