"Sources said that militant attacked an Army convoy, which was on way from Jammu to Srinagar, at Bonigam at Qazigund this afternoon".

Terrorists attacked at a convoy of Indian Army in Qazigund in Anantnag district of Jammu and Kashmir on Monday.

A soldier was injured in the militant attack and he was evacuated to military hospital in Srinagar for specialised treatment.

"Initially militants ambushed an army convoy near Bounigam village, during which an Indian army trooper was wounded", a police official said. Due to encounter, authorities suspended traffic on Jammu-Srinagar highway while train service to Banihal was also stopped.

"The gunfight began after contingents of army and police cordoned off the locality especially the suspected house", Ghulam Hassan, a local told Xinhua. Locals said that they heard massive blasts during evening hours and it seemed the building in which terrorists are present have been razed to ground.

The security forces used improvised explosive devices to blow up the house in their final assault against holed up militants, the police sources said. Defense Spokesperson said, "The operation against terrorists is going on and so far they haven't recovered dead body of any terrorists".

The operation was underway when last reports were received, he added.
