Shopian: A terrorist and three others were killed as security forces said they responded to an attack on a mobile vehicle checkpost in south Kashmir's Shopian on Sunday evening. OGWs refer to Over-Ground Workers or associates in counter-terrorism parlance.

Police is on the spot and have started legal formalities.

The terrorist killed was identified as Shahid Ahmad Dar, a resident of Shopian, and a weapon was found with him.

A defence spokesperson said the militants fired on a Mobile Vehicle Check Post (MVCP) of army's 44 Rashtriya Rifles at Pahnoo, 52 km from here, around 8 pm, from a auto.

Police sources told Kashmir Reader that militants attacked the Mobile Vehicle Check Post of the Army near the 44 RR camp in Pahnoo area.

The Army could not immediately furnish the details of the circumstances in which the accomplices were killed.

The slain militant has been identified as Shahid Ahmad Dar, a resident Shopian's Jamnagri village.

The Army said his three accomplices, whom the spokesman described as "over-ground workers", were also "found dead" in the auto apparently used by the militant.

After the killing of four persons including a militant, clashes erupted in the area with youth taking to roads and pelting stones on the security personnel. Meanwhile, the Army had cordoned the area and search operation in the district is on.
