"Two terrorists have been neutralised, and a search operation is underway in the area," ADGP Jammu Anand Jain told reporters on Wednesday.

"A new infiltrative group has emerged in the region and there are chances that more terrorists are hiding in the area. A search operation is still underway and we have cordoned off the area. More details on the incident will be conveyed later," he added, reported PTI.

It was a joint operation by Army, Jammu and Kashmir police and CRPF personnel, the officer said.

While one terrorist was killed early on Wednesday as he tried to lob a grenade, the other hid. At 3 am, he tried to break the police's cordon as he fired indiscriminately at the security forces.

A CRPF personnel died in the firing.

One civilian was also injured during the operation.

This was third terror attack in the Jammu region since Sunday.

9 people had died in an attack in the union territory's Reasi district.
