Two Lashker-e-Toiba militants were killed in a fierce gun battle with army troops in Reasi district of Jammu and Kashmir on Sunday.

Acting on specific information that some militants were hiding in Thanol forest belt, 140-km from Jammu, troops of 64 Rashtriya Rifles launched a search operation in the area, an army officer said.

During the operation, militants fired at the jawans and in the ensuing gunfight lasting over three hours, two Let militants were killed.

Two AK rifles and some ammunition were recovered from the scene, the officer said.
