Srinagar: Two terrorists were killed while 20 civilian protesters and two soldiers got injured in a gunfight in Shopian district of Jammu and Kashmir on Tuesday, confirmed police.

The father of one of the rebels died of shock after hearing that his son was trapped in the hideout.

The two terrorists were killed in Kundalan village after they opened fire on security forces, triggering a gun battle.

“The identity of the militants is being established,” a police officer said.

As civilians poured out of their homes and clashed with the security forces during the fighting, security personnel fired tear gas and pellet gunshots to prevent any disruption in the operations, leading to at least 20 injuries.
