Two soldiers have also been killed in the Kulgam gunfights. “Since the operation is on at one place, it is not clear to which outfit the slain terrorists belonged to. There is a possibility of the presence of local terrorists as well. Once the operation will be fully over, we will be able to find out the identities and affiliation of slain terrorists.”
