Srinagar: Two terrorists were killed in an overnight encounter with security forces in the Sopore area of Jammu and Kashmir’s Baramulla district, police said on Friday.
The security forces launched a cordon-and-search operation in the Warpora area of Sopore on Thursday, following information about the presence of ultras there, a police official said.
“During the house-to-house search, the location of the terrorists was established and they were asked to surrender. However, they refused the offer,” the official said.
He said the search operation turned into an encounter after the terrorists started firing towards the positions of the security forces, which was retaliated.
“Two militants were neutralised in the operation, which was carried out without any collateral damage,” the official said.
