Aijaz along with his associate Basharat Ahmed Shiekh were kiiled in a gunfight at Nathipora area in Sopore outskirts on Thursday morning.

Varma further said that the time has come for the government to review the earlier notion that the Hurriyat can be in any form. "In the retaliatory action, both the militants were killed", he said, adding that two AK-47 rifles and other ammunition were recovered from the site.

In Jammu and Kashmir, two terrorists, who were holed up in a house at Sopore in Baramulla district, have been killed, an Army official said.

"The security forces laid a cordon around the area".

"As the search party intensified the combing operation, the hiding militants threw a grenade and opened indiscriminate fire on them, resulting in injuries to the two army men".

After the separate incidents of terrorists attack being reported from Jammu and Kashmir's Sopore, Director General of Police SP Vaid briefed the entire condition of the state.

Since the end of October 2016, armed robbers have struck at various branches of banks in Jammu and Kashmir, looting almost Rs. 92 lakh in 13 separate attacks.

The incidents coincide with the spike in militancy and mass protests that followed the killing of Hizbul Mujahideen militant Burhan Wani last July. In the grenade attack four policeman were injured.

Following the day long tral encounter, the Hizbul Mujahideen suffered major setback, with his successor, Sabzar Ahmed Bhat being gunned down in Pulwama.
