Hizb terrorist killed in encounter in Kashmir's Kulgam; soldier martyred

Two encounters are underway in Kulgam and Pulwama areas of Jammu and Kashmir, say media reports. The police said that "the attack was repulsed and both the militants were killed". This resulted in a "brief shootout" in which the militants were killed. However, one of them, succumbed to his injuries.

Paying tributes to the slain militants, Hizb chief Salahuddin, in a statement issued from Pakistan-occupied Kashmir, said the ongoing struggle would continue till a logical conclusion was reached.

Gunfight was going on, the spokesman said, adding, further details are awaited. "A hideout was busted and blankets were seized from the spot", said the police.

In Laan Tral of Pulwama, the gun battle broke out after security forces reached the area following a tip-off about militants hiding in the village.
