Four militants were killed in two encounters in Shopian and Pulwama districts of Jammu and Kashmir on Tuesday, taking the death toll of ultras in the two operations to five, the Army said.

The security forces launched a cordon and search operation at Melhura in the Zainapora area of Shopian on Monday evening, following a tipoff about militants’ presence.

The search operation turned into an encounter after the militants opened fire on security personnel.

One militant was killed in the initial exchange of fire between the two sides last evening, while another one was shot dead this morning, an Army official said. An AK rifle and a pistol were among the arms and ammunition seized from the encounter site.

In the Harkipora area of Pulwama district, three militants were killed and weapons seized from the encounter site. — PTI
