Five terrorists have been killed in Jammu And Kashmir's Shopian district in an encounter with security forces during a joint operation.
"Five terrorists have been eliminated in operation Reban in Shopian," defence spokesperson Col Rajesh Kalia said.
He said good drills ensured no collateral damage took place during the operation.
A police official said the security forces launched a cordon and search operation in Reban area of Shopian, in South Kashmir, this morning after receiving specific information about the presence of terrorists in the area.
He said the search operation turned into an encounter after terrorists fired at a search party of the forces, which retaliated.
