SRINAGAR: Day after the Baramulla anti-terror operation, three heavily armed unidentified terrorists were killed in a gunfight on Thursday in the frontier district of Kupwara in northern Kashmir.

The group of terrorists, who police say infiltrated recently from Pakistan Occupied Kashmir, were intercepted by a joint team of Jammu and Kashmir Police and 4 Sikh regiment in the Jumgund area near the Line of Control.

The police said they are yet to ascertain the identity of the slain militants but suspect they belonged to Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT).

The police said the gunfight started after they received inputs about a group of terrorists trying to infiltrate the Valley.

“Based on a specific input developed by Kupwara Police regarding infiltration attempt of terrorists in village Jumagund, Kupwara, an encounter has started when the infiltrating terrorists were intercepted by Army and Police,” Kashmir Zone Police tweeted.

In a subsequent tweet, the police said the three terrorists were killed.

“KupwaraEncounterUpdate: All three terrorists killed, affiliated with proscribed terror outfit LeT. Identification being ascertained. Incriminating materials including arms and ammunition recovered (sic),” the police tweeted quoting Inspector General of Police (IGP) Kashmir Vijay Kumar.

On Wednesday three Pakistani terrorists were killed in a chance encounter in the Keeri area of Baramulla.
