Tral (Jammu and Kashmir) [India], March 5 (ANI): Two Hizb-ul Mujahideen (HM) terrorists were gunned down in an encounter that broke out in Jammu and Kashmir's Tral town on Tuesday morning, police said.
"The killed terrorists were affiliated with proscribed terror outfit HM.

Several cases were registered against them as they were involved in terrorist activities," as per police records.
The two terrorists have been identified as Adfar Fayaz Parray and Irfan Ahmad, residents of Gulshanpora Tral and Shariefabad Tral, respectively.
"Last night searches were carried out and when there was firing from terrorists' side it led to an encounter. Two terrorists were neutralised.

All these materials have been taken in the case records for further investigation and to probe their complicity in other terror cases, police stated.
Police have urged locals not to venture inside the encounter zone since such an area can prove dangerous due to stray explosive materials.
"People are requested to cooperate with police till the area is completely sanitized and cleared of all the explosives materials if any," police said. (ANI)
