Srinagar: The Jammu and Kashmir police today issued an advisory asking people to stay away from the encounter site in Nowgam where two unknown militants were killed in a nightlong gunfight.

“Entering such area can prove dangerous due to uncleared explosive material. People are requested to cooperate with the police till the area is properly cleared of all the explosive materials, if any,” a police spokesman said in a handout issued this morning.

Last week, seven people were killed in an explosion at a gunfight spot in south Kashmir’s Kulgam district.
