He said the attack took place at 4.00 am and exchange of firing was going on between the militants and security forces.

The terrorists are holed up inside the building campus of the 182nd Battalion camp, according to BSF officials. No casualties have been reported so far from the encounter site, which is located in one of the most fortified areas of Kashmir.
