Srinagar/UNI: A local militant was killed in a brief gunfight with security forces in north Kashmir’s Baramulla district Thursday morning, police said.

They said the brief gunfight broke when militants fired at an area domination party of the Army and police at Cherdari in the outskirts of Baramulla town.

“#Terrorists fired on ADP of Army and Police in Cherdari, #Baramulla. Alert parties retaliated and 1 terrorist killed. ….01 pistol, 01 loaded magazine & 01 Pak grenade was recovered from his possession,” a police tweet said.

The police later identified the slain as Javaid Ahmed Wani, a resident of south Kashmir’s Kulgam district. They said the slain had "assisted a militant in the killing of two migrant workers from Bihar on October 2 at Wanpoh Kulgam."

“Killed #terrorist is hybrid type, identified as Javed Ah Wani of #Kulgam district and he has assisted terrorist Gulzar (who was killed on 20th Oct) in #killing of 2 labourers from #Bihar in #Wanpoh.
