Srinagar: Two terrorists were killed in a gunfight following a tip-off of at least five to six terrorists, including some top commanders of Hizbul Mujahideen being trapped in the cordoned off limits, in Jammu and Kashmir's Shopian district, on Tuesday according to police sources.

Firing exchanges were underway in the orchards of Heff Shermal village. The area has been sealed off to prevent the terrorists from escaping.

Apart from that, clashes between security forces and civilians also broke out, which lasted over the last two hours near the gun battle site as protesters tried to scuttle the efforts of the security forces prompting tear gas shells to be fired to dissuade the mob.
