A policeman was injured after terrorists opened fire on a search party in a village in the Gandoh area of Jammu and Kashmir’s Doda district on Wednesday evening. This was the second terror-related incident in Doda in the span of 24 hours and the fourth in Jammu and Kashmir in three days.

As per officials, the firing was reported from the Kota top area of Bhalesa around 7.40 p.m. to which security forces retaliated.

An intermittent exchange of fire between the two sides was going on when the last reports were received. Reinforcements have been rushed to the area to strengthen the cordon, they said.
