At least six terrorists have been killed and an Army jawan martyred in an encounter in Shopian district of Jammu and Kashmir.

A Defence spokesman said, security forces had launched a cordon and search operation in Batgund village late last night, on the basis of specific input about the presence of terrorists in the area.

As the forces zeroed-in, the terrorists opened fire, triggering a gunfight. While six terrorists were killed, an Army jawan was injured. He, later, succumbed to his injuries at a hospital.

The operation has concluded and the identity of the slain terrorists is being ascertained.
