According to police, a local woman also lost her life during the late night cross firing on Sunday as she was trapped in a house where the terrorists were hiding.

The state's police chief, Shesh Paul Vaid, said all the three militants were apparently Pakistanis and were neutralised by a joint team of Jammu & Kashmir Police, Rashtriya Rifles and the Central Reserve Police Force. "It has been raining whole night & boys were out there in the cold", DGP said in a tweet. As they were closing in on the hide out, they were fired upon triggering the encounter.

According to experts, terrorists in higher altitudes generally try to move into villages after snowfall.
