Two militants were killed in a gunfight in south Kashmir's Kulgam district on Saturday morning, police said.

The gunfight erupted at Nipora village during a cordon and search operation which was launched by the joint teams of police, Army and CRPF following an input about the militants’ presence.

"As the area was being cordoned off, the hiding militants opened fire triggering a gunfight. Two militants were killed in the operation," a police officer said, adding that searches in the area were under way.

In the past six days this is the fourth encounter in south Kashmir. Fourteen militants including two top commanders were killed in the earlier three gunfights.
