Srinagar/UNI: Two unidentified militants were killed in an ongoing operation close to the Line of Control (LoC) in Baramulla district of Jammu and Kashmir on Saturday, police said.

The militants, believed to be infiltrators, were killed in an encounter that erupted in a forward area at Hathlanga Uri.

"Two terrorists killed. Search going on," police said in a post on X(Twitter).

"Further details will follow," police said.

The fresh gunfight erupted at a time when a massive anti-militancy operation was underway in south Kashmir’s Anantnag district to neutralise two to three Lashkar-e-Taiba militants, killing two Army officers and a Deputy Superintendent of Police.

The operation at Garol in the Kokarnag forest area, now in its fourth day, resumed on Saturday.

On late Friday, Additional Director General of Police, Kashmir, Vijay Kumar, said, "All two-three trapped terrorists will be neutralised."
