    According to official data, more than 200 terrorists have been killed in Jammu and Kashmir (J&K) so far this year. A senior police official has revealed that out of the 203 militants killed 166 were local terrorists.

    A terrorist has been killed in an ongoing gunfight on the outskirts of Srinagar in Jammu and Kashmir, Indian security forces announced on Wednesday.

    According to a senior official from the security forces, the identity of the slain terrorist is still being established.  

    "Two to three more terrorists are suspected of being inside a house that was cordoned off last evening. But the operation was suspended due to darkness and it was resumed today morning", the officer said on Wednesday.
