He eventually endorsed an NRA proposal to arm teachers, a step the group said would help prevent mass school shootings. It's true that the president has, as recently as today, broadly endorsed the right to self defense.
The official said the militants fired on a search team of security forces, who retaliated, triggering the gunfight.
An assistant commandant of the CRPF was injured during the initial firefight.
The puppet authorities have snapped internet services in Srinagar to prevent people from sharing information about the situation in Chattabal.
