2 militants, civilian killed in J&K gunfight

2 militants, civilian killed in J&K gunfight

Security forces had launched a search operation in Larnoo Kokernag village of Anantnag to eliminate terrorists from their hideouts when the militants opened fire.

"As the joint contingents of army and police were trying to encircle the suspected area, militants present there fired upon them triggering a fierce gunfight", the police official said.

The identities of the slain militants are being ascertained and combing operations are underway, officials said.

"The victims were identified as Muhammad Furhan and Muhammad Farham, both locals".

The body of the militant, identified as Farhan Ahmad Wani, was handed over to his parents for burial in Khudwani village on the border of Kulgam and Shopian where villagers were already agitating over the death of a person killed in a road accident involving a para-military vehicle.

The police said that Farhan was a "hardcore stone-pelter turned militant" against whom several cases were registered in Kulgam police stations. "He was involved in many anti national and anti social activities", it added. "Two militants have been killed in the gunfight and operation is in progress".

Hailing from Wangund, Kaimuh village, Farhan had joined Hizbul on June 13 past year. The security forces are going after militants as part of "operation all out" and on the basis of a "hit list" of militants. The protesting youth reached the SKUAST campus in Khodweni, which houses the army, and started clashes with the government forces deployed there. "Two youth were injured and they were rushed to Anantnag district hospital". "He is stable", Kochak said.

Meanwhile, the Indian authorities have shut down mobile internet services in all districts of south Kashmir.
