The six terrorists, including JeM local commander Abu Dawood, have been encircled by the security forces amidst intermittent gunfire. The gunbattle, which began on Wednesday, was on till last reports came in.

The encounter took place against the backdrop of Indo-Pak tensions following evidence that the November 26 Mumbai terror attacks originated from Pakistan.
