Two non-local Jaish-e-Muhammad (JeM) militants were killed in an operation on the outskirts of Srinagar on Friday morning. According to police, the militants, identified as Ali and Idrees, both from Pakistan, were trapped during a cordon-and-search operation in the Sutsoo Kalan area of Nowgam.

“The search party was fired upon by the hiding militants. The fire was retaliated, leading to an encounter. Both militants were killed,” said the police. They were involved in conspiring and executing many terror attacks in the area, said the police.

Meanwhile, suspected militants shot at a civilian at Pulwama’s Tral on Friday. “The victim, Naseer Ahmad Ganaie, is stated to be critical,” said the police.
