A militant was killed in an encounter with security forces in Ganderbal district on Saturday, army sources said.

Acting on specific information, security forces sealed Kangan area, 40 kms from here, this morning to flush out militants.

As the troops zeroed in at a particular house, where the militants were hiding, the ultras opened fire at the forces and in the ensuing gunbattle a militant was killed, the sources said.

The operation was still in progress when reports last came in, they added.
