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.
