Srinagar: Two terrorists have been killed in an encounter that is still underway with security forces in Pulwama district of Jammu and Kashmir on Monday.
The gun battle started early this morning after security launched an operation in Bahmnoo area of Pulwama, 40 km from capital Srinagar, when they received information about the presence of three terrorists.
While two of them have been killed, one is still firing at the security forces.
The operation comes barely 10 hours after civilian protesters helped a group of terrorists escape a cordon and search operation in the Malangpora village of the same district.
On Saturday, top Lashkar terrorist Bashir Lashkari and his associate was killed in a major gun battle with security forces in Jammu and Kashmir’s Anantnag district. This comes less than a fortnight after the Lashkar-e-Taiba commander led an ambush that killed station house officer of the state police Feroz Dar and five other policemen.
