Two militants have been neutralised in the on-going encounter, news agency ANI reported on Thursday. One of them has been identified as Mohammed Shafi Shergujari, an LeT operative. A 15-year-old boy was also killed during clashes between the security personnel and villagers who assembled near the site of encounter.

Troops of 130 battalion CRPF, 55 Rashtirya Rifles and SOG Pulwama are involved in the operation. Security forces have not confirmed or denied the presence of more militants.

                The phrase " Kashmir Is Integral part of India" exists only in perceptions and media. In fact there is nothing sort of INTEGRAL is happening in the Kashmir.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Let's not give much importance to this INTEGRAL rant and concentrate on other burning issues.
