Three suspected terrorists, believed to be affiliated to the outlawed Lashkar-e-Taiba, were killed in an encounter in Kashmir's Pulwama district.

This is the first major anti-insurgency operation that was successful in Pulwama.

The operation started last evening when local intelligence sources tipped India's security personnel about presence of three young men who had joined the LeT.

Indian authorities are yet to establish the killed terrorists' identities.

The LeT recently lost one of their senior commanders Junaid Mattoo in south Kashmir's Anantnag district.

The Lashkar-e-Taiba has been recognised as a terror outfit operating mainly out of Pakistan-administered Kashmir.

The Indian government has blamed the organisation of carrying out the Parliament attack in 2001 and the 2008 Mumbai attacks, that left scored dead and hundreds injured.
