In second gun battle since yesterday, the security forces on Wednesday killed three militants in Jammu and Kashmir's Pulwama district. Two militants were killed on Tuesday in the same district.

Three Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) militants, including a top commander, were killed in an encounter with security forces at Kangan village of south Kashmir's Pulwama district on Wednesday, officials said.

A soldier is reported to have sustain injuries during the gun battle.

A joint team of Army, police and CRPF cordoned off the village on a specific intelligence input about the presence of terrorists in that area.

The gunfight began at dawn when security forces closed in on the house where the terrorists were present. The terrorists fired at the security forces, triggering the encounter.

It is the second gunfight in the area in two days. On June 2, two JeM terrorists were killed in Tral area of Pulwama. Police had said both slain militants were Kashmiris.
