Two Jaish-e-Mohammad militants were killed and an Army jawan injured in an overnight encounter with security forces in Sopore, police said on Tuesday.

The gunbattle broke out at Lalid-Sopore during search operation, 60 kms from Srinagar, last evening. An army jawan was also injured in the gunbattle that was continuing when last reports came in, they said.
