Indian troops martyr two youth, a woman in IoK

Gunfight begins in Shopian village amid clashes

One woman was killed and over eight civilians suffered injuries on Tuesday during the clashes in Shopian, sparked by the killing of two militants in the night long gunfight with security forces.

The former chief minister said he stood in solidarity with the family in their moment of inconsolable loss and bereavement.

The militants opened fire on the security forces following which an encounter ensued that led to the killing of two terrorists.

Beauty was rushed to a hospital where she succumbed to injuries. The security forces had to fire shotgun pellets and tear gas shells to contain the violent mob during the course of which at least a dozen civilians and a minor sustained serious injuries.

The gun-battle started late Monday evening after government forces, including the Indian Army's 44 Rashtriya Rifles, Special Operations Group (SOG) of Jammu and Kashmir Police and the paramilitary forces, cordoned off and raided some homes in Batmoora village of Shopian in southern Kashmir, following a tip-off that rebels were hiding there, police officials said.

The sources in district hospital Pulwama informed Kashmir Life that the deceased was brought dead.

Two Jaish militants and a civilian were killed in an encounter in south Kashmir's Batmura village. He claimed that the civilian died in cross firing between militants and armed forces.

Army officials said there was no trace of two other soldiers who also went missing when they slipped from a snow slope along the frontier last week. We also looked for the third militant, but I think before the cordon was laid he must have escaped.

The locals according to reports staged massive pro-freedom protest protests in and around the encounter site. Police said their condition is stated to be stable.
