In Key Operations Before Panchayat Polls, 8 Militants Killed In Jammu And Kashmir


Eight militants were killed in three separate incidents in Jammu and Kashmir on Thursday, including three who died in a gunfight with soldiers along the Line of Control (LoC) with Pakistan in North Kashmir’s Kupwara , state police said.

The exchange of fire at Dat Gali was triggered after the three militants ignored warnings by men of the Jammu and Kashmir Rifles manning the LoC, while trying to sneak into India from Pakistan-occupied Kashmir.

Officials said a combing operation was underway at the scene of the firefight and the bodies of the three unidentified militants, which were lying close to the LoC fence, had not been recovered until reports last came in. Read more
