Srinagar, Jan 1 (IANS) Security forces on Monday recovered the body of a third militant killed a day earlier after attacking a CRPF camp in Jammu and Kashmir's Pulwama district.

"The body was found at the Lethpora encounter site. With this, the search operation has ended," a police officer said.

Two local militants of Jaish-e-Muhammad (JeM) were killed on Sunday when three guerrillas entered the training centre of the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF), triggering fierce fighting that lasted nearly 12 hours.

The identity of the third militant was being established, police said. Five CRPF troopers were also killed in the fighting.

Internet services suspended in Pulwama district on Sunday are yet to be restored.
