  • J&K: One soldier killed, two injured in Kulgam gunfight

Srinagar:An Army jawan was killed during a gunbattle with militants in Jammu and Kashmir's Kulgam district and three civilians, including two teenagers, died in clashes between locals and security forces that followed, officials said.

Police said a soldier was killed and two other security men were also injured earlier on Wednesday when terrorists holed up inside a home started firing at the security personnel closing in on them.

Reports from the battle site said the house where the militants were hiding was destroyed while two others caught fire when the security forces used explosives.

The encounter in Kulgam comes on the heels of one of the most violent days in strife-torn Kashmir, where 12 militants were killed and another captured in three separate encounters in Shopian and Anantnag last week.
