Three suspected militants were killed in a gunfight with Indian troops in the southern district of Pulwama in Indian-controlled Kashmir on Wednesday morning.

An Indian soldier was also injured in the incident, who is being treated at the Army's 92-Base Hospital.

The dead are members of the militant group Jaish-e-Mohammed (JM), police sources said in a statement. The source added that a top commander of militant group Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) was killed in the exchange of fire along with his two associates.

Regional police, Indian Army's 55 Rashtriya Rifles and 183 Battalion of paramilitary forces launched an early morning cordon-and-search operation in the district's Astan Mohalla Kangan area.
