Authorities have cut off mobile internet services in the district to prevent residents from organizing anti-India protests to help militants escape.

Union Defence Minister Arun Jaitley also condoled the death of army and police personnel killed in an encounter in Jammu and Kashmir's Pulwama district. "But since a year ago we have seen multiple attacks carried by the outfit on the LoC that is due to their inability to move beyond LoC and in the hinter land", a police official said. It is a fidayeen attack.

"The bodies of two militants were recovered".

The majority of those were eliminated in the last two months after security forces doubled down on an offensive in south Kashmir and along the LoC. Two terrorists have also been killed in the encounter.
