Hours after the Indian armed force neutralized two Hizbul Mujahideen militants in an encounter in North Kashmir's Handwara, two separate gunfights broke out on early Tuesday in the valley's Kulgam and Pulwama districts.

A police spokesman said security forces launched a cordon and search operation in Nowbug-Kund village of Kulgam on Tuesday morning after receiving specific information about the presence of militants in the area. "The troops returned fire, triggering an encounter", he said.

"The militants fired upon a joint party of police, army and paramilitary troopers who were deployed at a crossing to check the movement of vehicles".

The gunbattle had also resulted in injuries to a policeman and death of a terrorist.

The slain militant was identified as Mudasir Badroo, a resident of Yaripora in Kulgam. A B.Tech passout, Ahmad was active in the region for the last three-and-a-half years, said sources.

A police official said Bhat was from the volatile Palhalan area. The police said that "the attack was repulsed and both the militants were killed".

Authorities suspended Internet services in south Kashmir areas and ordered the suspension of train service for the day after the gunfight started. "The operation was called off after no contact was established with them", a police official said.
