Srinagar: Three guerrillas were killed late yesterday in an ongoing gun battle with the Indian Army in Kashmir's Kupwara district.
"Three militants were killed in Tangdhar town near the LoC (Line of Control) in a fierce gun battle with the army. The operation against the militants is still going on," a senior police officer told IANS here.
"A group of heavily-armed militants had tried to enter the brigade headquarters of the army and their attempt has been foiled."
