A massive search operation was on Friday launched in a village in Jammu and Kashmir's Ramban district after a blast and some gunshots rocked the area, officials said.
Police assisted by the Army cordoned off Dharmund village and adjoining areas in the Batote area and a search operation is underway, they said.
The officials said the operation was launched immediately after a blast and some gunshots were heard in the village along the Jammu-Doda road.
Unconfirmed reports said that suspected terrorists hurled a grenade and followed it by firing on a quick reaction team of the security forces which signalled some persons to stop for checking.
However, senior officials are tight-lipped about the incident.
Reinforcements have also been rushed to the area, the officials said.
