A gunfight started here on Monday after militants, who tried to attack a Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) camp earlier, were forced to withdraw and later trapped inside a building, a police officer said.
The encounter in the Karan Nagar area started after the fleeing militants trapped inside the building were surrounded by the security forces, the officer said.
The sentry fired forcing the militants to flee, averting an attack on the camp.
"However, during searches in the peripheral area of the camp, it was found that the militants had entered a building in the area that was subsequently surrounded.
