Alleged militant slain in Srinagar firefight

An alleged militant was killed in an exchange of fire with the police in Srinagar who retaliated after the ultras fired on them in the Natipora area of the city, officials said Friday.

“Militants fired upon Srinagar Police team. Police also retaliated. During ensuing chance #encounter, one militant got killed but one escaped,” Kashmir Zone Police wrote on its official Twitter handle.

The police said arms and ammunition were also recovered from the site.

The identification of the slain ultra is being ascertained, they said.

Pertinently, the attack on the police team comes at a time when the armed forces are maintaining ‘highest level of vigil’ in the wake of recent target killings.
