Two militants were neutralised by security forces in an encounter in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama district.
A gunfight broke out between security forces and militants in the Hakripora area in south Kashmir on Tuesday.
The encounter started when security forces from the Special Operations Group of the Jammu and Kashmir Police, the CRPF and the Army received specific inputs about the presence of militants in the region.
They then cordoned off the village.
In the ensuing encounter, two militants were killed.
The Hakripora encounter comes hours after two militants were killed in an encounter in the Shopian district.
