An encounter broke out between terrorists and security forces in Jammu and Kashmir's Kulgam district on Monday, leaving three terrorists dead, a defence spokesman said.

The encounter broke out after the terrorists fired upon a patrolling party of the security forces at Lower Munda in Qazigund area of the south Kashmir district, a police official said.

He said the security forces retaliated, which triggered the gun fight.

 

Defence spokesman Colonel Rajesh Kalia said, "Three terrorists have been killed in the joint operation at Lower Munda."

He said the operation was in progress when reports last came in.
