These encounters are taking place after security forces conducted cordon and search operations in the state, reports CNN-News18.

The second encounter began in the forests of Laam -Tral area in Pulwama district as government forces detected suspicious movement of militants. The police said that "the attack was repulsed and both the militants were killed". The security personnel retaliated, resulting in the encounter in which two militants were killed.
