Security forces launched a final assault on terrorists hiding in a building in Karan Nagar area for the last 24 hours, killing two unidentified militant, police said. The identity and group affiliation of the slain militants were not immediately known.

The operation is going on as security forces believe one more militant is hiding in the under-construction building.

The operation to flush out the militants is in its final stage and is expected to end soon, Inspector General of Police (IGP), Kashmir, S P Pani said here. “We have been successful in localising them,” Pani told reporters near the encounter site.  Asked about the number of militants, the IGP said, “We suspect they are two but that will only be confirmed once the operation is over.”

The incident came two days after Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) terrorists attacked an Army camp in Sunjuwan area of Jammu, killing seven people, including six Army soldiers. Three terrorists were also killed in retaliation by the Army
