An army spokesman said the militants were killed in a joint operation with police and CRPF.
Two militants were killed in a gun battle with security forces after they attacked a police team in north Kashmir's Kupwara district on Monday, police said. Terrorists opened fire at a police check post at Sultanpora in the Zachaldara area of Handwara, 100km from here, a police official said.
Mattel unveils first Barbie to wear a hijab
But in those early days, Muhammad didn't have Barbies that wore a headscarf, so she would sew on her own hijabs with her sisters. It is not the first time Mattel, which is now facing financial difficulties, has honored an American Olympian with a doll.
"We have started investigation to ascertain the identity of the two militants", he added.
Four of his family members including father, two brothers and an aunt were also injured in the attack. They caution him against acting as an "informer" of police and working for mainstream parties.
