Civilian , Army Solidier killed in Kulgam encounter


After a lull of four days, mayhem returned to Kashmir on Wednesday.

An Indian Army soldier and two civilians were killed on Wednesday during a gunfight between the security forces and terrorists in Jammu and Kashmir that started late last night. The police official said that the gunbattle broke out between the militants and security forces in the early hours today.

There were no bodies of militants to be found in the hideout.

A police official said the operation is on in the area.

A J&K police official said that social media is to be blamed for youth partaking in militancy. One of them later succumbed to his injuries. "Bullets and pellets rained everywhere in response to the stones hurled by protesters who were hell-bent to move towards the gun fight site to help militants escape", an eyewitness told news agency CNS.

Several clashes were also reported in other areas of Kashmir.

Reports claim the civilian killings were caused after the local populace hindered in the operation of security forces.

Sada Gunakara Rao was 24 years in age and had joined the Army in 2012.

This was strongly contested by locals who assert that the civilians were shot dead by the security forces determined to break up the street protests.

"In the said encounter, three civilians, identified as Sarjeel Sheikh, Bilal Tantray and Faisal Ilahi, who were injured in the cross fire have succumbed to their injuries", he said and added that twelve more persons were injured in the clashes. The statement was silent on the death of the fourth civilian.

They said security forces blasted the house from where the militants were firing at them following which the firing stopped.

Authorities reacted with a security clampdown, shutting down internet services in southern parts of Kashmir and suspending train services south of Srinagar. An official spokesman said that all educational institutions in the Valley except in Ganderbal district will remain closed on Thursday, and all board and university examinations scheduled for the day have been postponed.

Senior separatist leader Mirwaiz Umar Farooq said Kashmiris were "left with no option other than to come out on roads" to protest.
