Three militants of Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) outfit were killed in an encounter with government forces in Amargrah area of Sopore on Saturday morning.

Cellular and mobile Internet services excluding Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL), in north Kashmir’s Baramulla district were suspended following the killing of the three LeT militants.
