Three Jaish-e-Mohammed terrorists were killed by the security forces in an encounter in South Kashmir's Tral area, Dilbag Singh, Director General of Police (DGP), Jammu and Kashmir, said on Tuesday.

He said two of the three militants killed could be foreign terrorists.

"Further details will be available once the operation ends," he said.

The police chief said that this module of Jaish was involved in the killing of two brothers from the nomadic Gujjar (nomad) community in August this year.

The Kashmir Zone Police, too, on its official Twitter account confirmed that three terrorists had been killed, adding the search in the area was on. They, however, added the "identities and affiliations being ascertained".

Meanwhile, a Junior Commissioned Officer (JCO) of the Indian Army succumbed to injuries, which he sustained in the exchange of fire with terrorists at a post 500m inside the Line of Control (LoC) in Naushera sector of Jammu and Kashmir, news agency ANI reported on Tuesday evening.

The encounters in Naushera and Tral were the first after the Indian army claimed it had destroyed 3 terror camps opposite the Tanghdar sector in Pakistan occupied Kashmir. The Chief of the Army Staff, General Bipin Rawat, had confirmed that 6-10 Pakistani soldiers had also been killed in the artillery firing by the Indian army.

On October 20, two India soldiers were also killed in shelling by the Pakistan army which prompted retaliation from the Indian side inflicting heavy damages on terror camps across the LoC.
