According to reports, the militants started firing on a convoy of security forces between Sanat Nagar and Hyderpora bypass road.
A civilian was reportedly injured in the incident.
The militants fled the spot after the brief firing.
At least 12 people, including six Armymen and four cops, were killed in twin militant attacks at a police station and an Army cantonment in Jammu and Kashmir on Thursday morning.
The attacks came a day after the Prime Minister confirmed meeting his Pakistani counterpart Nawaz Sharif on the sidelines of the 68th session of the United Nations General Assembly in New York.
