Three unidentified terrorists were killed in an ongoing encounter between the terrorists and security forces at Kakpora in South Kashmir’s Pulwama district today morning, officials said.
“Three unidentified terrorists killed in encounter at Pulwama. Incriminating materials, including arms and ammunition recovered. Search going on,” police said.
Earlier the gunfight took place after a joint team of the police and the Army cordoned off the area and launched a search operation on the basis of a specific information about the presence of terrorists.
As the security forces zeroed in on the spot where terrorists were hiding, they came under a heavy volume of fire that triggered the encounter.
