In another encounter from Jammu and Kashmir, two Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) terrorists were killed on Wednesday by security forces in Anantnag district, police said.

Following a tip about the presence of terrorists, security forces launched a search operation in Lal Chowk area in Anantnag district on Wednesday, a police official said.

The search operation took a steep turn after terrorists started firing at the security forces. Two terrorists, belonging to the LeT, were killed in the cross-fire, the official said.

Both of them belonged to Lashkar-e-Taiba and one of them has been identified as Bilal Ahmad Dar. Identity of the other terrorist is yet to be discovered, said Jammu and Kashmir official.
