One unidentified militant was killed and two others were arrested in two separate anti-militancy operations in Kashmir, security forces said on October 31.

The J&K police said one Pakistan militant, who had infiltrated into the Valley, got neutralised by the Army in the Keran Sector’s Jumagund area in Kupwara district on Oct. 31. The Keran Sector is closer to the Line of Control (LoC).

“A search operation in the area is still going on,” the police said.

The Army also arrested two militants, aboard a vehicle, in south Kashmir’s Pulwama.

Based on an input received from the J&K Police, a joint mobile vehicle check post (MVCP) was established around 5:15 p.m. on October 30, 2022.

“Around 8:00 p.m., a vehicle was intercepted. The occupants tried to flee. However, they were apprehended,” the Army said.
