india Updated: Mar 04, 2010 14:17 IST

An Army Captain and a militant were killed in an encounter between security forces and militants in Pulwama district on Thursday.

Two jawans and a policeman were also injured in the encounter that started on Wednesday in Mir Mohalla Dadasir, 40 kms from here.

The gun battle broke out when militants hiding in a house fired on a joint search party of police and troops of 42 Rashtriya Rifles in Mir Mohalla Dadasir.

The Captain is the second Army officer to be killed in an encounter in Kashmir in less than a fortnight. On February 24, Captain Devinder Singh Jass was killed in a gunbattle with militants in Sopore.
