Tension gripped south Kashmir on Tuesday after two top Jaish-e-Mohammad terrorists were killed in an encounter in an overnight operation and a 24-year-old woman died in the cross-fire in Bata Murran village of Shopian district.

Police officials said that the "anti-militancy operation" was stopped after a heavy exchange of fire due to darkness and extreme cold.

The police are searching the site.

"While the gunfight was going on, thousands of civilians, mostly youth, from neighbouring villages assembled and started marching towards the gunfight site. The civilians threw stones and bricks at them triggering clashes". The civilian killed has been identified as Beauty Jan. The ding-dong battles continued for several hours. "A lady with a bullet injury in her abdomen was brought to our hospital who was referred to SMHS hospital in a critical condition, " he added.

The deceased has been identified as Ruby Jaan, 30, locally known as Beauty Jaa, wife of Manzoor Ahmad Mir from Batmurran Shoipian.

The police claimed that the killed militants were "involved in a number of militant incidents including the recent attack on the vehicle of J&K Bank near Poju Shopian on 11th of December 2017 in which two bank guards were killed".
