Security forces on Monday killed four Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) terrorists after an encounter broke out in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama district.

A joint team of Army’s 44 Rashtriya Rifles, Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) and Special Operations Group (SOG) launched a cordon and search operation in Pulwama’s Lassipora on receiving credible inputs about the presence of terrorists in the area.
