Two militants were killed in a north Kashmir encounter early on Monday.

A defence spokesman in Srinagar [Images] said two unidentified militants were killed in north Kashmir's Wattergam Rafiabad village of Baramulla district in an ongoing encounter on Monday morning.

"Troops of 32 Rashtriya Rifles surrounded the village following specific information about the presence of a group of militants hiding inside," he said.

"As the troops zeroed in on the hiding militants, they came under heavy automatic gunfire which was returned, triggering an encounter in which two militants have been killed so far," the spokesman said.

"The operation is still in progress," he added.
