A gunfight broke out between terrorists and security forces in the Nagrota area of Jammu and Kashmir’s Jammu district early on Thursday. Four militants have been killed, the police sources said, adding that they were heavily armed and had infiltrated last night through Samba sector.

The police said militants were travelling towards Kashmir. They said J&K Police had prior information on the infiltration and travelling of militants on NHW.

According to PTI, the gunbattle started around 5 am near the toll plaza in the Ban area of Nagrota on the Jammu-Srinagar national highway. “Around 5 AM some terrorists opened fire at security forces near Ban Toll Plaza in Nagrota area.

Army troops have also joined the operation, defence spokesman Lt Col Devender Anand said.
