Pulwama encounter: Three terrorists, Army jawan killed in gunbattle

An Army jawan was also martyred in the encounter that broke out between militants and security forces on Monday.

The M4 carbine which is in the use of the USA armed forces has replaced the M16 rifle.

The police statement issued here on Tuesday said, "From the encounter site three weapons which include one AK 47 Draco rifle, one M4 carbine colt rifle and one pistol besides ammunition were recovered". One of the slain terrorist was a local, said the police official.

Giving details about the encounter, Major General Raju said three JeM militants were killed in a swift joint operation by Army, police and CRPF.
