This is the fifth gunfight in the Valley and the second encounter in South Kashmir since August 5 when the government abrogated the special status accorded to Jammu and Kashmir under Article 370 and bifurcated the state into two union territories.

Last week, two local militants of Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) were killed by security forces. A joint team of J&K Police and Army cordoned off Kawani village of Awantipora after specific inputs about the presence of militants.

As the joint team zeroed in on the target area, the militants opened fire triggering a gun battle that lasted for several hours. A civilian was also injured.

On Monday, the driver of a truck loading apples was killed by militants in South Kashmir's Shopian district, the same day the government restored all postpaid mobile services in Jammu and Kashmir in an effort to ease restrictions in the state following the August 5 decision.
