The firing started during a combing operation that followed last night.

Junaid Sehrai, son of Mohammad Ashraf Sehrai, chairman Tehreek-e-Hurriyat, was among two Hizb-ul-Mujahideen militants killed in a gunfight with a joint team of police and paramilitary CRPF at Nawa Kadal Srinagar on Tuesday. The troops also destroyed, at least two houses, during the operation. Of the total 69 terrorists killed so far, 22 belonged to Hizbul, which included some of the top commanders of the terror outfit.

The security forces involved in the operation comprised jawans from the Central Reserve Police Force and the Jammu and Kashmir Police. Mobile internet and telephone services have been snapped off in the Valley as a precautionary measure. The area where militants were hiding was immediately cordoned off as the squad zeroed in on the house, but the militants fired upon them triggering the encounter.
