Srinagar: Two terrorists of Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) outfit were killed, on Wednesday, in a combat with the security forces in Jammu and Kashmir's Shopian district, as per police.

Identity of both terrorists has been established, an officer said.

"Firing exchanges have stopped. Searches were underway in the area. It was a clean operation. No collateral damage or injury to any civilian or security force personnel occurred," the police officer added.

Following the tip-off, a joint operation by the Rashtriya Rifles, Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) and the special operations group (SOG) of state police was started earlier in the day in Mamender.

The gunfight broke out when the cordon around the hiding terrorists was tightened, instigating the militants to fire, the officer said.
