Two terrorists and an associate have been killed in an encounter that began on Saturday morning in Awantipora, a city in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama district.

As of this writing, a search operation was still ongoing.

The encounter in Awantipora’s Goripora area comes close of the heels of one in South Kashmir’s Shopian district on Wednesday, in which four terrorists from the Ansar Ghazwat-ul-Hind group were killed.

The men killed included a top commander of the group.

These operations are taking place in the backdrop of a nationwide lockdown imposed to battle the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, which has sickened over 400 people in Jammu and Kashmir.

As many as 92 have recovered, and five are dead.
