SRINAGAR: Jammu and Kashmir Police on Tuesday said that militants managed to escape after a brief gunfight in the Reban Zainapora area of South Kashmir’s Shopian district.

A top police officer told that after the initial contact was established with the hiding militants, there was a complete lull in firing from both sides.

The searches continued throughout the night, however, no militant was found at the encounter. It seems that due to darkness militants believed to be two in number managed to escape, the officer added.
