Three militants were killed in separate incidents in Manipur, police sources said today.

Two militants of United Kuki Liberation Council were gunned down in an encounter with Assam Rifles jawans at Gngpimual village in Churachandpur district, bordering Myanmar, last night.

In another incident, a militant was killed in a shootout with Assam Rifles personnel at a place near India-Myanmar border pillar 81 in Chandel district yesterday, sources said.

Security personnel recovered two pistols, four magazines, several rounds of live ammunition, 132 extortion demand letters, a wrist watch, draft paper, a receipt book and other documents from the two spots.

Over 300 persons have been killed in militancy-related in Manipur this year, according to reports.
