Earlier, "Joint Resistance Leadership", an alliance of key separatist leaders had called for observing one day shutdown on Monday to mourn and protest the civilian killings in Shopian.
As per recent updates, another dead body of a militant has been recovered from the firing sight, making the total killings in Shopian district when gunmen attacked an army vehicle raised to six. The army has claimed that the civilians were over ground workers (OGW) of a militant organisation, while family members have negated the claims and alleged army of killing them in cold-blooded murder.
According to the Army, two vehicles were asked to stop by a mobile checking squad of the force in this militancy-affected area near Pohan.
Authorities have already ordered the closure of schools and colleges till Wednesday. While two bodies - one youth and one militant - were found near the site of shooting on Monday morning, four bodies - comprising three youths and a militant - were found on Sunday night itself.
The territory's Public Service Commission (PSC) has postponed the examination for four papers that were scheduled to be held today. First they said the militants had come to attack their party and now they have changed their statement saying army signalled the vehicle to stop, but the driver refused. "No militant was accompanying them". The forces have conducted searches in Chawa, Mochi Mohalla, Crusher Morh, Tandwal, Thandikassi, Iran Khanetar, Gambhir, and Kakora areas.
