Srinagar: One militant has been killed in an ongoing overnight gunfight in the Hokarsar area of central Kashmir’s Srinagar district.

An unnamed senior police officer said that one militant has been killed so far in the ongoing gunfight. However, the identity of the militant couldn’t be established as of now.

The officer further said that the operation was suspended due to darkness as there is always a chance of collateral damage. The cordon around the place where militants were hiding was strengthened so that there is no chance for militants to escape.

Yesterday, a joint team of police, the army’s 02 Rashtriya Rifles (RR) and Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) launched a cordon and search operation in Hokarsar.

As the joint team of forces approached the suspected spot, the hiding militants fired upon the forces, triggering off a gunfight.(GNS)
