Srinagar: Three militants on Friday were gunned down in Pulwama district of Jammu and Kashmir and a youth died in clashes between stone-pelters and security personnel near the encounter site, a police official said on Friday. 

Security forces launched a cordon and search operation in Thumna village after getting information about the presence of militants there, the official said. 

Three militants were holed up inside a house. The security personnel managed to pinpoint the location of the ultras but the operation had to be delayed due to the presence of civilians in the house, he said. 

A gunfight broke out between the security forces and the militants after all the civilians were evacuated. All the three ultras were killed, the official said. 

Meanwhile, a mob started hurling stones at the security forces involved in the anti-militancy operation. At least five people received pellet or bullet injuries in the security forces action against the protestors, the police official said. He said one of the injured, 16-year-old Faizaan Ahmad Khan, was declared dead by doctors at a hospital.
