After the encounter, locals in the Malangpora area of Pulwama helped at least two to three militants escape, according to media reports.

India Today earlier reported that the terrorists, identified as top Hizbul Mujahideen commanders, escaped early Monday as locals disrupted the search operations being carried out since Sunday evening.

A stone-pelting mob clashed with the security forces, who launched a cordon and search operation after reports emerged that suspected militants were trapped in the area.

On Saturday, security forces killed top Lashkar-e-Taiba commander Bashir Lashkari who masterminded the gruesome murder of six policemen, including officer Feroz Dar last month, in an encounter following a cordon operation.

Two civilians were also killed near the site of the gunfight where stone-pelters had gathered to disrupt the operation.
