An intense search operation was launched in the area, bordering Srinagar's Hazratbal, this afternoon, a police officer said.

Sound of gunshots were heard during the operation, but no one was hurt. The militants apparently fired while fleeing from the spot, he said.

An AK assault rifle was recovered at Hadoora Bala in Ganderbal district, the spokesman said. There was no trace of militants after several hours of intense search, the spokesman said.

Meanwhile, the sound of a few shots were also heard at Goripora village in Pulwama district of south Kashmir today.

Reinforcements were immediately sent and a cordon was laid around Goripora village. Search operations in both the villages are underway, he added.
