Sources said that since there were apprehensions of the presence of two militants in the area, a thorough search operation was being launched in the area.
However, a senior official on the basis of anonymity said, "The encounter is almost over, however, the search is underway in the area. One terrorist was neutralised & the materials that were recovered from him suggest that he was a Pakistani terrorist who belonged to Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT)".
