Srinagar: One militant was killed and another caught alive during a gunfight in Dialgam in south Kashmir’s Anantnag, police said today.
The slain militant was identified as Rouf Khanday who had joined Hizbul Mujahideen militant outfit February this year.
“As the search started and the location of militants was zeroed in, the security forces made repeated requests on loudspeaker asking them to surrender, as per the SOP,” a police official said.
The statement further said that one of the militants came out of the house where the duo was holed up and was taken into custody. He was not identified, though.
