Security forces gun down two militants in South Kashmir's Anantnag

2 militants killed in encounter with security forces in Jammu and Kashmir

Two militants have been killed in an ongoing encounter at Larnow area of Kokernag in South Kashmir's Anantnag district on Tuesday.

Personnel of the Army's Rashtriya Rifles, the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) and the Special Operations Group of the state police surrounded Larnoo village following a tip about the presence of militants.

The identities of the slain militants are being ascertained and combing operations are underway, officials said.

The body of the militant, identified as Farhan Ahmad Wani, was handed over to his parents for burial in Khudwani village on the border of Kulgam and Shopian where villagers were already agitating over the death of a person killed in a road accident involving a para-military vehicle.

A police spokesperson also confirmed that a "Hizbul Mujahideen terrorist" had been killed in the encounter in Kokerenag.

Some civilians pelted stones at an Army camp in Kudwani, even as few militants hidden in the mob fired at it, claimed police.

Soon after the news of Farheen's killing reached Khodweni, hundreds of youth hit the streets and held protest demonstrations against his killing.

"One terrorist was killed in the encounter who was identified as Farhan Ahmad Wani, a resident of Redwani- Khudwani in Kulgam district", he said.

He said that till reports last came in, two of the hiding terrorists were neutralised by the security forces.

The locals, however, told Kashmir Reader that police and army were both present at the spot and it was hard to tell who opened fire.

The youth was immediately taken to District Hospital Anantnag, where he succumbed.
