It was, however, not clear whether the gunshot sound was that of a speculative fire by the security forces or exchange of fire with terrorists.
A police source said that gunshots were heard during the search operation launched by security forces in the wooded area near the Line of Control (LoC).
Security forces claimed to have recovered in the morning three bags of ammunition and explosive materials from a gorge during searches in Talha area.
Meanwhile, Rajouri district administration has ordered the closure of all schools in Sunderbani sub division as a precautionary measure.
