Srinagar: Two terrorists were killed on Wednesday during an encounter with security forces in Rafiabad area of Kashmir's Baramulla district.

An Army official said the militants were holed up inside a house in Pazalpora village in Sopore.

According to the official two weapons were seized and operations were still on in the area.

The terrorist have been identified as Gulzar Ahmad of Brathkalan Sopore and Basit of Pattan Andergam.

They both belonged to the Hizbul Mujahideen outfit.

Following intelligence inputs about the presence of militants, security forces had launched a cordon and search operation on Tuesday.

A police official said the search operation was halted for the night but the forces maintained the cordon to stop the militants from escaping.

The operation was resumed this morning and the gunfight started after the trapped militants opened fire on the forces, he said.
