The police has said that the armed forces cordoned Zadoora-Nipora village in the Mir Bazar area in Anantnag district falling under the police jurisdiction of Kulgam in the morning, and the militants tried to break the cordon.

“They opened fire which was retaliated, triggering a brief gunfight,” a police official said.
