Two Hizb-ul-Mujahideen militants died in a brief gun fight in Shopian district of south Kashmir early Thursday.
Reports quoting army said that the slain militants were identified as Waseem Malla of Pehlipora Shopian and Naseer Pandit of Karimabad Pulwama.
“The duo was trapped in a house in Vihil village of the district,” reports said. “The house was cordoned off by the forces. But the duo tried to escape from the cordon by opening indiscriminate fire. The fire was returned and the duo was killed in a field outside the village.”
A J&K Police cop, Naseer Pandit, ran away with weapons from Amira Kadal MLA Altaf Bukhari’s residence in Srinagar in 2015.
