Three militants belonging to the Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) were killed in a fierce gunfight with forces personnel in the Samno area of south Kashmir’s Kulgam district, according to police.

A senior police officer confirmed the successful operation, detailing that the joint forces of Police and the army initiated a cordon and search operation in the region on the previous day. As the joint team closed in on the suspected location, the militants, affiliated with the LeT, opened fire on the security personnel. The forces retaliated, leading to a prolonged gun battle.

The identities of the slain militants are yet to be ascertained, and search operations are ongoing to gather more information. The operation was temporarily halted during the night due to darkness and safety precautions, resuming with the first light of the morning.
