Written by: Staff

Srinagar, May 16 (UNI) Two Lashkar-e -Tobia-militants were killed and a Junior Commissioned Officer (JCO) was injured in a 24-hour-long encounter in south Kashmir, official sources said.

They said troops and Special Operation Group (SOG) of Jammu and Kashmir police launched a joint operation at Kulgam in the south Kashmir district of Anantnag last evening to nab militants.

However, when the troops were sealing the area, militants attacked them with automatic weapons from a house. The cordon around the particular house was tightened and militants were asked to surrender. One JCO was injured in the militant firing.

Sources said the operation to flush out the militants was resumed with the first light this morning.

They said security forces allegedly blasted the house after the holed up militants refused to surrender and kept firing and hurling grenades.

The house from where the militants were firing was razed to ground.

Security forces and police were searching the debris to recover the bodies of the militants.

Sources said security forces gunned down a Pakistani infiltrator immediately after he sneaked into this side from Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (POK) in Keran sector early this morning. One ak rifle and other arms and ammunition were recovered from the slain militants.
