Three militants killed in gunfight in south Kashmir’s Shopian

Three Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) militants were killed in an early morning gunfight in south Kashmir’s Shopian on Tuesday, the police said, adding that two of the slain militants were responsible for the killing of a Kashmiri Pandit and a labourer from Nepal.

Early Tuesday morning, a joint team of Jammu and Kashmir Police, Army and paramilitary forces cordoned off Munjh Marg village in south Kashmir’s Shopian after inputs about the presence of militants in the area.

Police officials said that as the joint team of forces was zeroing in on the target, the militants hiding in the area opened indiscriminate fire and tried to break the security cordon. The joint team retaliated, leading to a gunfight, officials added.
