Exchange of firing between the Indian army and terrorists is continuing and also underway in Ramgarh in Jammu and Kashmir's Samba sector.
Two-three suicide attackers surrounded the area due to heavy exchange of firing between the militants and security forces.
In a second incident, the Border Security Force caught a group of terrorists attempting to cross over at the International Border at Ramgarh in Jammu and Kashmir's Samba sector.
There have been several attacks by terrorists from across the border over the past few weeks.
Previously in September, 19 soldiers were killed by terrorists from Pakistan who attacked an army base in Uri. A few days later, the Indian army carried out surgical strikes across the Line of Control. From then onwards Pakistan has been attacking India and many deaths of Indian soldiers and terrorists have been reported.
