According to a police official, the security forces launched a cordon and search operation in Wanipora area of Shopian on Monday evening following information about the presence of militants in the area.
The militants opened fire on the security forces following which an encounter ensued that led to the killing of two terrorists. The third militant, however, managed to escape the spot.
A woman was injured during the exchange of fire and she succumbed to her injuries later on.
