SRINAGAR — One militant has been killed in an ongoing gunfight at Khonmoh area of Central Kashmir’s Srinagar on Monday.
The gunfight had ensued after a team of J&K Police and Army’s 50 RR was fired upon during a cordon-and-search operation launched in the area amid specific information about the presence of militants.
“One militant has been killed in the ongoing gunfight. However, the identity of the slain militant is yet to be ascertained,” a police officer said.
Earlier, the militants were believed to have escaped, but the police later said that they had just changed their location and contact was established again which led to the killing of the militant. (GNS)
