Two suspected Pakistani militants of the Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) were killed by security forces in Jammu and Kashmir's Doda district on Saturday night, said police.
Based on a tip-off, the security forces launched an operation to nab the suspected militants hiding in Phagsoo area of the district, about 180 km from Doda.
Senior Superintendent of Police (Doda) Manohar Singh said the forces established contact with the militants late on Saturday, leading to a two-hour-long gunfight in which the militants were killed.
They have been identified as Mohammad Ahmed alias Abu Furkar and Mohammad Irfan alias Abu Abdullah - both belonged to Lashkar-e-Toiba and were suspected Pakistani nationals.
Security forces seized arms and ammunitions, 10 kg of explosives and two rocket-propelled guns, said Singh.
