Two militants killed in Kashmir

Upon receiving specific information, security forces from SOG police, army and CRPF cordoned off the area.

Three AK rifles and other ammunition was recovered from the encounter site. Six protesters who sustained minor injuries in the clashes were shifted to a nearby hospital, reports added.

Indian forces, in a fresh act of state terrorism, on Saturday, martyred three Kashmiri youth in Tral town, reported Kashmir Media Service. "The operation is in the final stage and the identity of the militants is being ascertained".

"The dead militants look like foreigners, probably belonging to Jaish-e-Muhammad (JeM) outfit", Vaid said.

Armed encounters between rebels fighting against Indian rule of Kashmir and soldiers have become more frequent since last July when security forces killed a popular rebel commander. The security forces are going after militants as part of operation "hunt down" and on the basis of a "hit list" of militants. An Indian soldier was killed in ceasefire violation in Rajouri district while a paramilitary officer was injured in a grenade attack in Kulgam district on Saturday afternoon.
