    Two terror suspects were killed by Indian police officers in the course of an operation in the country's northern state of Jammu and Kashmir, local media reported.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Indian soldiers and police officers killed at least two terrorists in a Sunday operation, according to the reports.

    The NDTV broadcaster reported citing a spokesman of the Indian Defense Ministry that the country's police and army received information about terrorists in the Tahab area of Jammu and Kashmir's district of Pulwama.

    After receiving the information, the security forces launched a search operation and were attacked by the terrorists, the media outlet added.
