Aasif Suhaf, Srinagar: Three terrorists were killed in an encounter at GathMohalla area of Kakapora in south Kashmir’s Pulwama district on Friday.
Official sources told News24, that three militants have been killed in a Gunfight, however identity of the slain militant is yet to be ascertained.
A top police officer earlier told News24 that the trapped militants are believed to be responsible for attack on BJP leader’s house in which one cop was killed yesterday in Srinagar.
“Terrorists involved in yesterday’s attack on BJP leader in which one policeman was martyred, have been killed during Pulwama encounter. Snatched weapon also recovered,” IGP Kashmir Vijay Kumar said.
Indian security forces have thus taken revenge for the martyrdom of a soldier who was killed in the attack on the house of a BJP leader in Jammu and Kashmir on Thursday.

The security forces had surrounded the terrorists in Pulwama since morning. According to the police, during the operation, the police personnel were fired upon, after which they also retaliated and firing started from both sides.
