Srinagar: Security forces gunned down two Lashker-e-Toiba (LeT) militants in an ongoing encounter that erupted in Jammu and Kashmir's Shopian district on Tuesday, officials said.

They said the gun battle erupted at Nagbal during a cordon and search operation in the area following an input about the presence of militants.

"As the joint team of forces cordoned the suspected spot, the hiding terrorists opened fire, triggering a gunfight during which two LeT militants were killed," a security official said.

"Both the killed terrorists were affiliated with proscribed terror outfit LeT. Search going on. Further details shall follow".

Police said the joint forces were on the job.
