Two unidentified militants and an “associate” were killed in an operation of security forces in south Kashmir’s Pulwama on Saturday.
A police spokesman said two unidentified terrorists and one hardcore associate of terrorists were killed in a pre-dawn operation at Goripora in Awantipora area.
The police sources said the militants were encircled after a specific tip-off about presence of militants in an orchard. “A underground hideout was busted during the operation,” sources said.
The police neither disclosed the identity of the outfit nor the militants killed in the operation.
It’s second such operation of security forces in south Kashmir in the past 24 hours. Two militants were killed in an ambush in Anantnag on Friday evening, hours after they abducted a policeman.
Four operations of security forces left 10 militants dead in south Kashmir in the past eight days.
