A separatist guerrilla was killed by troops in Jammu and Kashmir's Sopore town on Friday. Acting on a tip-off, troops of the Rashtriya Rifles and police surrounded a house in Badambagh area of Sopore, about 55 km from here, and asked the militants hiding inside to surrender.

“The surrounding troops came under heavy automatic gunfire from the hiding militants triggering an encounter.

“One unidentified militant has been killed in the encounter and searches are still on in the area," a police officer said in Srinagar.
