Srinagar, Aug 24 (IANS) — A soldier was killed by separatist guerrillas Sunday near the Line of Control (LoC) in Kupwara district of Jammu and Kashmir, police said.

A gunfight also took place between security forces and guerrillas in the Kalaroos forest area, 95 km from Srinagar, in the same district.

“A soldier was killed near the LoC in Tangdhar area in militant firing today (Sunday),” a police officer told IANS here.

“The soldier was killed in the ongoing operation against militants in the area that has been continuing since the last fortnight in which four militants have been killed so far,” the officer said.

Personnel from the counter-insurgency Rashtriya Rifles were, meanwhile, engaged in a gunfight with heavily armed guerrillas in Kalaroos forest area.
