A militant was killed on Tuesday in an encounter with Army near the Line of Control in Tangdhar sector of Kashmir's Kupwara district.

"The troops along LoC in Tangdhar sector observed some suspicious movement past midnight. On being challenged, the militant opened fire at Army positions which was retaliated," an Army spokesman said in Srinagar.

He said a militant was killed in the brief exchange of gunfire and an AK rifle was recovered from the spot.

The spokesman said it was not clear yet whether the slain militant was infiltrating from or exhilarating to Pakistan occupied Kashmir.

The operation is still in progress to look for any more militants in the area, he added.
