Srinagar: Two Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM)militants were killed on Wednesday in an encounter with security forces in Shopian district of Jammu and Kashmir, officials said.

Security forces launched a cordon and search operation in Meemendar area of Shopian following information about the presence of militants there, the officials said.

They said the search operation turned into an encounter after militants opened fire towards the security forces, who retaliated.

The two militants were killed in the ensuing gunfight. The officials said the slain militants were affiliated with proscribed Jaish-e-Mohammad.

Arms and ammunition were recovered from the scene of the encounter, he said, adding further details are awaited.

The encounter comes a day after India bombed and destroyed Jaish-e-Mohammed's (JeM) biggest training camp in Balakot in Pakistan's restive Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, about 80-km from the Line of Control (LoC), killing a "very large number" of terrorists, trainers and senior commanders.

The strike was the first by the Indian Air Force (IAF) inside Pakistan after the 1971 war.
