New Delhi: One policeman was killed and another was injured in an ongoing encounter between security forces and militants in Poonch district of Jammu and Kashmir on Sunday morning.

The encounter started after police received information about the presence of militants in the area.

The militants were hiding in an under construction government building in the outskirts of Poonch district.

“The militants have been surrounded and all escape routes were sealed,” a senior police officer said.

This comes a day after a youth was killed in south Kashmir’s Shopian district during the clashes between security forces and protesters.
