The two terrorists were given an opportunity to surrender before being killed, but when they refused to surrender, they were shot dead. He said that the search operation is going on after the death of terrorists in Baramulla. Earlier, three terrorists were killed in South Kashmir’s Kulgam on Tuesday and Monday.
