Two AK-47 rifles and other arms and ammunition were claimed to have been recovered from the slain duo. They have been identified as Junaid Ashraf Khan from Srinagar and Tariq Ahmed Sheikh from Pulwama.

Junaid is the son of senior All Parties Hurriyat Conference leader, Muhammad Ashraf Sehrai.

Two Hizbul Mujahideen militants were killed while a CRPF jawan and a Jammu and Kashmir policeman suffered injuries during an encounter in the city's Nawakadal area on Tuesday, police said. There was a lull in firing for about five hours after that.

Junaid Sehrai, who was an MBA, joined Hizbul Mujahideen after he was subjected to humiliation and inhuman torture outside his house by an Indian police officer around two years ago.
