SRINAGAR — Three militants have been killed in an ongoing operation at Pozwalpora area of Zoonimar in central Kashmir’s Srinagar district.

Inspector General of Police (Kashmir Zone) VIjay Kumar said that three unidentified militants have been killed so far, while searches are still going on.

Earlier, IGP Kashmir Vijay Kumar while talking to media said, “We tried to persuade the militants to surrender, in fact we brought their parents too to the encounter site but they rejected the offer.”

Year 2022 saw highest number of anti-militancy operations in J-K in five years: MHA

One among the militants is involved in last month’s attack at Pandach area of Ganderbal, in which two BSF personnel were killed, the IGP added.

Meanwhile, mobile Internet services have been suspended in Srinagar as a precaution measure.
