Seven persons, including two special police officers were killed and four civilians injured in separate incidents in Jammu and Kashmir during the past 24 hours, officials said on Saturday.

One terrorist had been killed in an encounter with a joint team of Rashtriya Rifles and police at Kasblari village in Poonch district on Saturday afternoon, police said.

The encounter was continuing as two more terrorists were trapped in the security forces cordon, they said.

Another gunbattle was on between terrorists and security forces at Donadi in Pulwama district and one terrorist had been killed so far, an official spokesman said.

In Bhallesa area of Doda district, two SPOs German Singh and Ishwar Lal were shot dead by two colleagues after being locked up by the Chinyas police post early on Saturday, Jammu zone IGP SP Vaid said.

The two SPOs were fired at by their colleagues in connivance with terrorists who may have been waiting outside, he said, adding the post was set up in the house of a surrendered terrorist Javed Iqbal.

After killing the two, Iqbal and another SPO Abdul Gayoom fled with weapons, including AK and other self-loading rifles, the officer said.
