Kashmir gunfight kills Indian solder, two militants

Two militants and an Indian soldier were killed on Friday in a gunfight with the security forces in north Kashmir's Bandipora district.

The police said troops of the 13 Rashtriya Rifles and special operations group (SOG) surrounded Manzpora village at night following information about the militants' presence.

"With the break of dawn, the flushing out operation was started when the hiding militants opened indiscriminate fire causing critical injuries to a soldier, who later succumbed," a senior police officer said.

Two militants were also killed in the operation, the officer said.

In another operation in Tujjar village of Baramulla district, security forces surrounded a house where a local militant is reportedly hiding.

"The holed up local militant is being persuaded to surrender," the police said, according to a news agency report.
