In the Budgam encounter, the security forces recovered one AK-47 rifle, and one totally burnt weapon, which could be M-4 rifle.

Reports said the clashes spread from Pakherpora to nearby Dalwan area.

Reports said that the youths took to streets and pelted stones at the security forces to disrupt the anti-militant operation.
