Srinagar, Feb 12: A gunfight broke out between security forces and militants, who took shelter in a building in Karan Nagar area of the city after their attempt to strike a CRPF camp was foiled early today, officials said.

A CRPF jawan was injured in the exchange of fire in the heart of the city, they said.

"The sentry at the camp noticed two suspicious persons at around 4.30 am, carrying backpacks and weapons. He challenged them and opened fire," a spokesman of the CRPF said.

The militants fled from the spot and took shelter in a under-construction house nearby, the officials said.

The building has been cordoned off by the CRPF.

According to senior CRPF officials, there were two militants.

Intermittent exchange of fire was reported and the CRPF moved in more troops to ensure that the militants do not escape.

The incident comes two days after Jaish-e-Mohammad militants attacked an Army camp in Sunjwan area of Jammu, killing six people including five soldiers.
