Two militants killed in Kashmir encounter

Srinagar, December 26, 2020

Two unidentified terrorists were killed in an overnight encounter with the security forces in South Kashmir's Shopian district, officials said on Saturday.

The gun battle began on Friday after security forces cordoned off the Kanigam area and launched a search operation on the basis of specific information about militant presence.

As the security forces zeroed in on the hideout, they came under a heavy volume of firing that triggered the encounter.

Police said a search operation is going on in the area.

The encounter in Shopian came just a day after two terrorists were killed in an encounter with security forces at Kreeri in North Kashmir's Baramulla district.
