Srinagar: An unidentified terrorist has been killed in an ongoing encounter in south Kashmir’s Kulgam district, police said.
The gunfight erupted in Ashmuji village when a joint team of forces launched a cordon and a search operation following input about terrorist presence.
“So far one terrorist has been killed,” a police officer said. “The operation is underway as we believe one more is trapped.”
This is the third gunfight in the Kulgam district in the last three days. On November 17, five militants including two top local commanders were killed in two separate encounters at Pombai and Gopalpora villages of Kulgam district.
