Four terrorists were killed on Saturday in an encounter with security forces in south Kashmir’s Pulwama district, the army said.

The security forces launched a cordon and search operation in the Hanjan area Saturday morning after receiving specific information about the presence of terrorists there, an army official said.

 

The search operation turned into an encounter after the ultras opened fire at the search party, who retaliated.

Four terrorists were killed in the gunfight. Weapons and other warlike stores were found at the encounter site, the official said.

The identity and group affiliation of the slain militants was being ascertained, he said.

The search and sanitisation operation is underway.
