2 unidentified militants slain in Kulgam gunfight

Two unidentified militants were on Thursday killed in an encounter with armed forces in the Kulgam district of Jammu and Kashmir, police said.

Forces launched an anti-militancy operation on Tuesday in the Mishipora area of Kulgam, following information of ultras in the area, a police spokesman said.

After an initial exchange of firing with forces, militants had managed to move location within the general area of Mishipora, he said.

However, forces maintained the cordon and continued the search operation which resulted in a fresh firefight on Thursday, leading to the killing of two ultras, the spokesman.

The operation is in progress, a police official said.

Another encounter broke out between militants and forces in the Hangalgund area of neighboring Anantnag district, the spokesman said.

He said the operation was in progress when reports last came in.
