Two separatist guerrillas of Hizbul Mujaheedin outfit were killed in gunfight with security forces in north Kashmir's Baramulla district Tuesday, police said.

A senior police officer said troops of counter-insurgency Rashtriya Rifles (RR) and police surrounded Goshbugh village near Pattan, 40 km from Srinagar, Tuesday afternoon on specific information about presence of guerrillas there.

"The holed-up militants, near the government school, were challenged to surrender but opened fire at the security forces. This triggered the gunfight, at the end of which two local militants of Hizbul Mujaheedin outfit were killed," the officer said.

"Arms and ammunition have also been recovered," he added.
