Srinagar: Two suspected Lashkar-eTaiba (LeT) terrorists were killed in an encounter with security forces in Pulwama district on Friday.

The operation was carried out by 55RR, Pulwama Police and Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF).

According to a police official, security forces launched a cordon and search operation in Braw Bandina area of Awantipora district in south Kashmir after receiving intelligence input about the presence of some terrorists in the area.
