The encounter comes hours before the Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh is to leave for a four day visit of Jammu and Kashmir.

One terrorist was killed in a gunfight that erupted today between holed up terrorists and the security forces in a village in Jammu and Kashmir's Baramulla district. The area has been cordoned off and a manhunt has been launched to nab the attackers. During the search operation, terrorist hiding in the area fired upon the joint search party.

The attacks come days after the gunning down of two Hizbul Mujahideen militants in another encounter in the Sopore district by the armed forces during ongoing anti-militancy operations in the area.

"One terrorist was killed in the encounter who was identified as Shahid Ahmad Sheikh @Shabir, district commander of HM, resident of Kachloo Qaziabad, Handwara". He was earlier affiliated with JeM. He was involved in many anti social, anti national and criminal activities.

The security forces recovered weapons with the dead bodies. The firing is still underway and there are no reports of casualties as of now.

The minister will chair a meeting of security officers of the Army, paramilitary forces and state police in Srinagar.
