One LeT terrorist has been killed in an ongoing encounter between terrorists and security forces at Soura in Central Kashmir’s Srinagar district, officials said on Friday.
“One terrorist of LeT terror outfit killed. Operation in progress,” police said.
The firefight between terrorists and security forces took place after a joint team of the police and the security forces cordoned off the area and launched a search operation on the basis of specific information about presence of terrorists.
As the security forces zeroed in on the spot where terrorists were hiding they came under a heavy volume of fire that triggered the encounter.
