Srinagar: Two Pakistani Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) militants including a top commander were killed on Sunday in an encounter that erupted in Beshembar Nagar area of Srinagar city on Sunday.

Two cops of Jammu and Kashmir Police and a CRPF personnel were injured during the gunfight and they were shifted to hospital for treatment, Inspector General of Police Vijay Kumar told media persons at the encounter site.
