Hiding terrorists resorted to indiscriminate firing to break the security cordon

According to a senior police official, the gunfight broke out on Friday evening between security forces and terrorists in Chillipora village of Shopian.

He said that on receiving specific inputs about the presence of some terrorists in the area, the security forces on Friday evening cordoned off the area in village Chillipora to either nab the hiding terrorists or neutralise them.

“Sensing that the security forces cordon is tightening and escape routes virtually blocked, the hiding terrorists resorted to indiscriminate firing to break the security cordon and escape,” said the police official.
