The security forces on Wednesday gunned down two militants holding out at Soothu, Nowgam on the outskirts of Srinagar in Jammu and Kashmir. The encounter, which began as an Army-led search operation early morning, turned into a gunfight between the security forces and militants. Internet services have been suspended in the area.

This is the second encounter within a week in the Valley following Sunday’s encounter in south Kashmir’s Kulgam district where three militants were neutralised. Seven civilians were also killed in an explosion following the encounter at the site which was left unsanitised.

Hours after this, two Pakistani intruders were neutralised in Rajouri after they ambushed an Indian Army patrol party near the Line of Control (LoC). The intruders, who were heavily armed, were believed to be part of Pakistan’s Border Action Team. On the other hand, three security personnel lost their lives, while another was injured in the attack that took place in Sunderbani sector.
