A Kashmiri militant was among three militants who were killed on Saturday in a gunfight with the security forces in Jammu and Kashmir's Pulwama district, police said.
The slain Kashmiri militant was identified as Showkat Ahmad Dar, a resident of the same village, where the operation was conducted.
Informed sources said while the exact identities of the other two were yet to be ascertained, but all of them belonged were likely to be of the Hizbul Mujahiddin outfit.
The hiding militants when challenged had opened fire triggering the encounter.
