Two militants were killed in a gunfight with the security forces on Saturday in south Kashmir's Kulgam district.

Police sources said the militants were killed in Katapora village of Yaripora area in Kulgam.

"The identity of the slain militants is being ascertained," a source said.

Clashes between stone-pelting youth and security forces have started near the site of the gunfight, sources said.

Security forces are using tear smoke to quell the protesters.

Security forces started a cordon and search operation in Katapora village following information about the presence of militants there, sources said.

"As the cordon around the hiding militants was tightened, they fired at security forces, triggering an encounter", police said.

Mobile internet services have been suspended in Kulgam and Shopian districts, sources added.
