Pulwama, Aug 16 (ANI): One Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) militant was killed in an encounter with security forces in Jammu and Kashmir's Pulwama district on Sunday.

On receiving information, a combing operation was launched jointly by police and army personnel in Barmullah, 40 km from Srinagar.

According to a police spokesman, they were attacked by militants hiding in some houses.

Meanwhile, after heavy shelling at the Ballar post along Indo-Pak border, massive search operations are carried out by the security forces in the entire Samba sector today.
