Representational

Separately on Friday, a soldier was killed when Pakistani soldiers fired at Indian posts in southern Naushera along the Line of Control (LoC) that divides Kashmir between the nuclear-armed rivals, an Indian Army spokesperson said.

Two civilians were also killed after forces opened fire to disperse protesters and stone pelters trying to shield the militants and disturb the anti-militant operation.

"Some of the militants also fired from within the crowd indiscriminately on the security forces", he said.

Nasir Wani had joined the militancy past year and was involved in militant activities in the area.

According to Kashmir Media Service, body of Junaid Matoo was recovered from the debris of the two houses destroyed by Indian troops during violent military operation in Arwani area in Kulgam district. He was seen on CCTV footage carrying out the dastardly act. He was seen attacking a police post and fleeing in a vehicle.

The attackers after lobbing a grenade resorted to indiscriminate firing, killing all the six policemen on board.




Police sources said 10-15 heavily armed militants attacked the police party, led by SHO Feroz Ahmad Dar, near Thajiwara and also looted their weapons. The site of this attack was about 17 km from the Arwani encounter site. His popularity could be the reason why there were such intense protests in south Kashmir on Friday.

On Friday morning, joint forces launched cordon around few residential house in Arwani, where he and his two associates were hiding. The one who died, Mummad Ashraf, was hit by a bullet. Anantnag DC Dr Abid Rashid confirmed the deaths. Soon, some villagers gathered and pelted stones on security forces.

The militants killed in encounter have been identified as Junaid Matto, Nasir Wani and Adil Mushtaq Mir. He was declared brought dead.

The protests spread to the north of the Valley as well. The Hurriyat Conference has called for a complete shutdown on Saturday.
