Two more Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorists were killed by the police at Gulgam village in the border district of Kupwara in Jammu and Kashmir on Friday.

According to SSP Kupwara, six foreign LeT terrorists had recently infiltrated into Kupwara, out of which three were killed in an encounter at Cherwari Gulgam on Wednesday and another had been overpowered by locals of Awoora and handed over to the local police.

However, the remaining two Pakistanis had escaped from the site of encounter. On Friday after receiving information regarding their presence, Kupwara Police and 41 RR launched an operation and cordoned off some houses of Gulgam.

As the police zeroed in on the target, the terrorists entered into the cowshed of one Mohd Sultan Lone, son of Ghulam Rasool Lone, and started firing indiscriminately. The fire was duly returned and in the ensuing encounter, the cowshed caught fire. During the search operation, dead bodies of both the unidentified Lashkar terrorists were recovered from the site of encounter. Large quantities of arms and ammunition were also recovered from the site of encounter.
