Hizbul militant killed in Kashmir gunfight
A Hizbul Mujahideen militant was killed on Monday in an ongoing gunfight between security forces and militants holed-up in a house in Jammu and Kashmir's Shopian district, police said.

Security forces surrounded Gatipora village in Shopian in the afternoon following information about a group of militants hiding there.

"When the security forces closed on the house in which the militants were hiding, the militants opened fire at them, triggering a gunfight.

"One militant has been killed in this ongoing operation so far. Initial reports said two to three militants were hiding in the house," a police official said.
