Jammu and Kashmir: 2 terrorists killed in Anantnag encounter

Jammu and Kashmir: 2 terrorists killed in Anantnag encounter

Two militants have been killed in an ongoing encounter at Larnow area of Kokernag in South Kashmir's Anantnag district on Tuesday.

Security forces launched a cordon-and-search operation in the area following information about the presence of some terrorists, a police official said.

"As the joint contingents of army and police were trying to encircle the suspected area, militants present there fired upon them triggering a fierce gunfight", the police official said.

The identities of the slain militants are yet to be ascertained. The killed civilian has been identified as Khalid Ahmad Dar, son of Abdul Samad Dar, a resident of Khodweni.

The police said that Farhan was a "hardcore stone-pelter turned militant" against whom several cases were registered in Kulgam police stations. In north Kashmir's Baramulla district, two militants and nine Over Ground Workers (OGWs) were arrested, said a Jammu and Kashmir police spokesperson. A native of Kudwani, Wani had joined militancy in June 2017. The officials said that the Army opened fire when one of its camps in the area came under attack by a stone-pelting mob.

"Clashes were going on".

Authorities snapped Internet services in the district to prevent "rumor mongering" on social media.

"The injured youth, Yasir Dar, is under treatment with an injury to his shoulder".
