The gunfight had started between the terrorists and security forces on Thursday. This happened as a joint team of the police and the security forces had cordoned off an area while launching a search operation on the basis of specific information about the presence of terrorists.  

When the security forces zeroed in on the spot where the terrorists were hiding, they were met with heavy fire, which led to the encounter.  

Earlier, the Jammu and Kashmir Police on Thursday claimed to have arrested two terrorists of TRF and two terror associates of the same outfit. The terrorists were arrested in Srinagar's Barzulla area after a barricade was laid by the police along with the CRPF.

Following the arrest of the two terrorists, J&K Police received information about two other terror suspects. Both terrorist suspects were captured in Srinagar later that day.
