Militants and the government forces exchanged fire in Teliyan Arampora area of Sopore in north Kashmir’s Baramulla district early today. 

Reports said a joint team of the government forces cordoned off the Teliyan Arampora late last night following inputs about the presence of at least two militants.

A brief exchange of fire took place between the militants and the forces early today around 4:30am, they said.

Internet has been suspended in the area as a “precautionary measure”, said an official.
