Srinagar/UNI: Three militants on Monday were killed in an encounter with security forces in south Kashmir district of Kulgam.

This is the second encounter in less than 24 hours in Kulgam, where four militants were killed last night in a gunfight.

Official sources told UNI that militants fired at security force patrolling party at Lower Munda in Qazigund on Srinagar-Jammu national highway in south Kashmir on Monday morning.

They said the security forces retaliated ensuing in an encounter. “Additional security forces from nearby camps were rushed to the area to foil any attempts by militants to escape,” they said.

Defence Ministry spokesperson Colonel Rajesh Kalia told UNI that three militants were killed in the exchange of fire.

With this, 17 militants were killed in six different encounters in about 10 days in south Kashmir.
