2 militants, soldier killed, 3 civilians hurt in Qazigund gunfight

Director general of Jammu and Kashmir police SP Vaid told HT that the fire had come from a house near Qazigund and the area has been cordoned off.

An official identified the slain as Sepoy Jitender Singh who was hurt in militant attack on army patrol.

SRINAGAR, Indian-controlled Kashmir, Dec. 4 (Xinhua) - Two militants and a trooper were killed, while another trooper was wounded Monday in a gunfight in restive Indian-controlled Kashmir, police said.

He said another soldier was injured in the firefight.

Official sources said that a group of militants opened indiscriminate fire upon army's patrolling party in Bounigam in Qazigund, leaving three soldiers injured.




Locals said they heard heavy gunfire and sound of blasts.

Terrorists attacked an army convoy in Jammu and Kashmir's Qazigund before at least three of them took cover in a building.

"When the militants were challenged, they fired at the security forces, triggering a gunfight which continued for almost four hours". The security forces fired tear-smoke shells and pellets to disperse them. He said the search operation is on.

He said the combing and search operation in the area was going on when reports last poured in.
