Launching a joint combing operation, security forces on Monday shot dead one more terrorist, believed to have escaped during the gun-battle in the Samba area, after a fierce encounter near an army formation.
Security forces have intercepted a message exchanged among terrorists which revealed that the slain terrorists belonged to a new outfit called Al-Meran.
The search operation is continuing and security forces are still looking for another terrorist who was seen in the forest belt nearby.
The slain terrorists were suspected to be part of the group which infiltrated into India after a fire fight with the Border Security Force at Benglard border outpost on the Indo-Pak border on Friday.
