He said the search operation turned into an encounter after the terrorists opened fire at the security forces, who retaliated.
Two unidentified militants were killed in the encounter, which was under way when the reports last came in, he added.
Two terrorists were killed in another encounter that broke out in Tujjan in south Kashmir's Pulwama, the spokesperson said.
Inspector General of Police, Kashmir, Vijay Kumar, said one of the slain terrorists had been identified as Majid Nazir of Jaish-e-Mohammad.
