Srinagar: Three terrorists were killed in an encounter with security forces in Shopian district of Jammu and Kashmir on Wednesday (June 10), police said.

A cordon-and-search operation was launched in the Sugoo area of Shopian in south Kashmir in the morning on receiving specific information about the presence of terrorists in the area, a police official said.

He said the operation turned into an encounter after the terrorists fired upon a search party of the forces, who retaliated.

Three terrorists were killed in the exchange of fire, the official added.

This is the third encounter in Shopian in four days.
