At least two militants were killed and three securitymen were injured during an encounter at Pulwama district in southern Kashmir on Friday, media reports said.

"Two militants were killed in the encounter. Three securitymen were injured," NDTV reported.

At least seven people were injured when security forces reportedly opened fire on stone-pelting protesters after the encounter.

"Police said some villagers had thrown stones at vehicles evacuating an officer injured in the encounter, prompting the security forces to open fire," NDTV reported.

Protesting against the firing, villagers clashed with the police in different parts of Pulwama district.
