Two militants killed in Kashmir’s Pulwama


Srinagar, March 26: Two Hizbul Mujahideen militants were killed on Sunday after a brief gunfight in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama district, police said.

“The militants, traveling in a vehicle, were challenged at a ‘naka’ (checkpost) set up by security forces in Padgampora area of Pulwama, but instead of giving themselves up, started firing at the security personnel triggering a brief gunfight in which both were killed,” a police officer said here.

Meanwhile, police have cordoned off the area.

“The exact identity of the slain militants is being established although both seem to be locals,” the official added.
