A photo posted on the Twitter handle of Kashmir Police showed the boy being carried away by a policeman on the North Kashmir town.

The encounter started after terrorists attacked a CRPF’s road opening party. They were placing a check post along with personnel of Jammu and Kashmir police on the Sopore by-pass highway in Model Town of Sopore. The terrorists resorted to indiscriminate firing on a CRPF patrol party. Though the CRPF troops retaliated the terrorists managed to escape.

The area has been sealed and a search operation has been launched. Search is on for the terrorists, the Kashmir Zone Police said in a tweet.

This is the second attack on the CRPF in Sopore in the last three months. On April 18, terrorists fired at a CRPF party, killing three personnel.
