Srinagar, July 3 (IANS) Two militants were killed on Monday in an ongoing gunfight in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama district.
A police spokesman said the killings took place in Bahmnoo village.
The first militant was killed earlier in the day after the Army, acting on specific information, carried out cordon and search operation in the village.
The Central Reserve Police Force assisted the police in the operation.
Monday’s offensive in Pulwama came barely 10 hours after civilian protesters helped a group of militants to escape a cordon in Malangpora village in the same district.
The protesters had clashed with the security forces on Sunday evening, forcing them to call off the operations.
