Soldier, civilian injured in Kulgam


A soldier and a civilian were injured during an anti-militancy operation in Jammu and Kashmir’s Kulgam district on Friday, police said.

A gun battle erupted between the militants and security forces at Redwani.

“As the joint team of forces cordoned the suspected spot, the hiding terrorists opened fire, triggering a gunfight,” an official said. “A soldier and a civilian got injured.”

Police said a massive search operation was on to trace the militants.

The gun battle broke out on a day when security was beefed up across Kashmir on the third anniversary of the abrogation of Article 370 of the Constitution.
