J&K: Third militant killed as Pulwama encounter enters second dayUpdated on : 04-07-2017 10:35 AM
A third militant was killed today in an encounter with security forces in Pulwama district of south Kashmir as the operation entered the second day.

One more militant was killed this morning and the body has been recovered. Three militants have been killed in the encounter so far and the search operation was on in the area, a police official said.

Security forces and Special Operation Group (SOG) of Jammu and Kashmir police launched a joint operation in Bamnoo village in the district following a tip off about the presence of militants on early Monday morning.

It was the militants, who opened fire when security forces approached, resulting in an encounter when the soldiers retaliated.

As the militants tried to escape from the cordoned off area one was killed before two other militants managed to enter a nearby house. Another militant who was holed up in the house was also killed in the encounter.

The identity of the slain ultras has not been ascertained yet, the official said.

Two Army personnel had sustained minor injuries during the operation.
