An encounter has started between terrorists and the security forces at Malbagh, Srinagar on Thursday night.

The firefight broke out after a joint team of police and security forces cordoned off the area on the basis of a specific intelligence input about the presence of terrorists there.

As the security forces zeroed in on the place where terrorists were hiding, they came under a heavy volume of fire that triggered the encounter.

Sources say one to two terrorists are trapped.

"Encounter has started at #Malbagh area of #Srinagar. Police and security forces are on the job. Further details shall follow," police put out a brief statement in a tweet.
