SRINAGAR: Three unidentified terrorists were killed in an encounter in south Kashmir's Shopian district on Friday, while in a separate gun battle still underway a policeman was killed and a second injured in central Kashmir's Budgam district, officials said.

The Shopian encounter started between terrorists and security forces in Badigam on Thursday night. It took place after security forces cordoned off the area and launched a search operation on the basis of specific information about militant presence.
