Srinagar: At least two security personnel, including a Special Police Officer, were injured Wednesday evening when militants opened fire on security forces, triggering a gunbattle, at a village in Kulgam district of South Kashmir, official sources said.

SPO Zahoor Ahmad and a soldier were injured when militants, hiding at village Khazanbal near Tangmarg, 75 km from here, opened indiscriminate fire on a joint search party of the police and Rashtriya Rifles, sources said.

They said the security forces returned the fire and a gunbattle was going on between the two sides when last reports were received.
