Baramulla (NVI): Two unidentified militants have been killed in an ongoing encounter with security forces in North Kashmir’s Baramulla district, police said.

Earlier this morning, after receiving inputs about the presence of militants in the Wanigam area of Baramulla, police, soldiers from the Army’s 29 Rashtriya Rifles and 176 Battalion of CRPF cordoned off the area, they said.

A police official told NVI that after the day-long search operation and intermittent firing, a militant was gunned down. He said the operation is still in progress. The second militant was neutralised just moments later.

The slain militants have not been identified yet and reinforcement has been called in after fresh firing, police said.
