Anantnag: Security forces shot dead two militants in the upper reaches of Kashmir's Anantnag district, officials said.

The encounter erupted at Sirchand Top in Pahalgam when security forces launched an anti-militancy operation.

“As the team approached the spot, terrorists fired upon them which was retaliated. In the gun battle, two terrorists has been killed,” a police officer said.

The police said both the militants were affiliated with the Hizbul Mujahideen.

One of them may be a commander who has been active since 2016.

The encounter took place at a time when Jammu and Kashmir is gearing up to host the Shri Amarnath Yatra, which is physically taking place after two years.
