One militant was killed in an ongoing gunfight in Jammu and Kashmir’s Kupwara district on Thursday.
The unidentified militant was brought down in the Sadu Ganga forest area during an encounter with the army, Defence Ministry sources said. An AK-47 rifle was recovered from the slain terrorist.
Earlier on Wednesday, Indian Army commando Sepoy Mukul Meena of 3 Para Regiment was martyred in the same gunfight.
The operation was launched in the forest area on Tuesday following information about a group of militants hiding there.
