The infiltrators were challenged and heavy firing ensued. "The terrorists managed to break contact and escaped back towards Pakistan Occupied Jammu and Kashmir under the cover of darkness," it said.

Huge quantities of administrative stores left behind by the terrorists were recovered from the encounter site including clothing, packaged food items and medicines with Pakistani markings.
