1 militant killed in Kashmir gunfight

IANS  |  Srinagar 

One militant was killed on Thursday in a gunfight with security forces in south Kashmir's Pulwama district, police said.

As soon as the security forces cordoned off Padgampora village following information about the presence of the militants, they were fired at, triggering the fighting.

The gunfight is still ongoing and one other holed-up militant has refused to surrender despite appeals, intelligence sources told IANS.

"Some of his family members were also asked to motivate him to surrender, but to no avail," the sources added.

The Bannihal-Baramulla train service was suspended for the day as the railway track moves close to Padgampora village.
