Srinagar: Four terrorists were killed on Saturday in two separate encounters with security forces in Kulgam and Pulwama districts of Jammu and Kashmir, police said.

Forces launched a cordon and search operation in Chingam area of Kulgam district of south Kashmir late Friday night following specific inputs about the presence of terrorists there, a police official said.

He said the search operation turned into an encounter after terrorists fired upon a security forces party, who retaliated.

They were involved in many terror crimes and civilian atrocities, including the killing of police official Khurshid Ahmad at Farah Mirbazzar and attack on sarpanch Aarif Ahmad at Akhran Mirbazzar in which he was critically injured,” the official said.

An Army official said an M4 rifle and a pistol have been recovered from the site of the encounter.
