Srinagar-based defence spokesman Col Rajesh Kalia told that two militants and a solider were killed in the operation going on Raynar forest area of the district since past six days.

The operation was launched last week after militants attacked an army patrolling party in Raynar forests adjacent to Panar area. Two soldiers had sustained during a brief gunfight on the weekend.

A massive search operation was soon launched in the area by the army, which entered sixth day today.

A group of over a dozen militants reportedly infiltrated near Bagtore area of Gurez and reached Chandaji. The group, according to reports, travelled to Panar through Bonkoot and upon reaching Raynar they came in contact with the troopers, who had laid an ambush.

Reports said that two militants are still hiding in the forest area while the rest have managed to escape. “Operation is still going on to trace out the other hiding militants,” said an army statement.
