Security forces on Saturday gunned down three militants in Kashmir. The encounter took place near the outskirts of Srinagar.
Acting on specific inputs regarding the presence of militants in the Tabela Chattabal, near the Safakadal area, forces layed the siege and gunned down three militants. The identity of the militants is yet to be revealed. One CRPF jawan was also injured in the operation.
As usual, stone pelting started near the encounter to help the terrorists, but forces dealt them hard and stopped them from creating any obstruction. One stone pelter also died when a speeding vehicle hit him.
This is the second success in the last week as security forces gunned down some top militants in the area.
