Two Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) militants were killed in a gunfight with the government forces while a student was shot dead allegedly by the forces personnel during the clashes, and a youth died ostensibly of a heart attack while running for his life during the police action on demonstrators, in this south Kashmir village.
The 9th class student Amir Nazir, 15, died when the government forces opened fire to quell the protests, while another victim Jalaluddin, died due to heart failure while running for safety during the clashes, witnesses said.
The slain Lashkar terrorists were identified as Jehangir Ganai and Mohammad Shafi Wagay alias Ehsan, both locals from Koel in south Kashmir. The security forces came under intense attack from stone pelters, which forced them to open fire, leaving several injured. The encounter started when security forces cordoned off a few residential houses last night and started search operations. They faced heavy firing from the militants, police officials said
During the encounter, the army got the wife of one of the terrorists to urge him to surrender, but he refused and instead opened fire. When contacted, the Inspector General of Police (IGP) Kashmir, SJM Geelani said, “We had inputs about the presence of militants. Cordon was laid and during wee hours one militant was killed. However, another militant was asked to surrender and even his family was brought but he refused. Later he got killed in an exchange of fire in the afternoon.”
The DIG said, “I request the public to stay away from the encounter sites. Human lives are very important for us. We don’t want to lose precious lives”.
In a separate incident, one Hizbul-e-Mujahedeen militant, Mustaq Seer, was killed in abrief encounter when he was traveling in a vehicle near Bandipora on Thursday.
