Two more unidentified militants have been killed in an ongoing gunfight that raged between militants and government forces in Jan Mohalla main town in South Kashmir’s Shopian district on Thursday, said police.

“#ShopianEncounterUpdate: Chief of proscribed #terrorist outfit AGuH (JeM) trapped. #Operation going on. Further details shall follow,” Kashmir Zone Police tweeted.

In another gunfight in Tral, the police claimed to have killed two militants in a joint operation. The police chief said Imitiyaz Shah, the chief of AGH, was killed in the gunfight.

Earlier, police said that a joint team of Police, Army and CRPF launched a Cordon and Search Operation (CASO) on specific information about the presence of militants in the area.

He said that as the joint team of forces approached towards the suspected spot, the hiding militants fired upon them, which was retaliated, thus triggering an encounter in which five unidentified militants have been killed.

The official informed that the operation is going on while identification of the militants is also being ascertained.
