A total of five terrorists have been killed in Jammu and Kashmir in two separate encounters in the districts of Budgam and Baramulla.
Four Jaish-e-Mohammed militants were killed in an ecounter with security forces in Budgam’s Futlipora area while a lone Lashkar-e-Taiba man was eliminated in Baramulla’s Sopore.
The Budgam encounter began early morning following a tip off received by security forces last night. Forces cordoned of the village at night and began a search operation.
The militants who were hiding in the area started firing on security forces, resulting in the encounter.
A clash between civilians and forces also erupted near the encounter site resulting in an injury to a civilian.
