At least one terrorist is believed to have taken refuge in a mosque in Jammu and Kashmir's Shopian on Friday, after an overnight encounter with security forces, even as two ultras were gunned down in Pulwama district's Tral region.

The encounter which has now turned into a stand-off broke out on Thursday evening in the Shopian district, police said, adding that three militants were killed and four security forces personnel injured.

In a tweet from its official Twitter handle, Kashmir Zone Police wrote, "Brother of holed up #terrorist & local Imamsahab sent inside mosque to persuade the #terrorists to come out & #surrender. Efforts are on to save the mosque."

In an earlier tweet, the police had said that the chief of terror outfit Ansar Ghazwatul Hind was among those trapped.

"Chief of proscribed #terrorist outfit AGuH (JeM) trapped," it read.
