Two terrorists were reportedly killed on Wednesday (16 October) in Jammu and Kashmir's Anantnag district in a gunfight with the security forces, police sources said.
Security forces surrounded Pazalpora village in Bijbehara area following specific information about a group of terrorists hiding there.
"As the security forces closed on the hiding militants (terrorists), they fired triggering an encounter. Firing exchanges are still going on in the area," a police officer said.
Reports said two terrorists have been killed in the gunfight so far, but police insisted that their death can only be confirmed after the bodies are recovered.
