Terrorist killed after attack on joint motor vehicle patrolling party in J&K

Shopian case J-K says Major Aditya not named as accused SC halts probe

A militant from Shopian was killed and his three "accomplices" were later "found to be dead", after a heavy exchange of gunfire took place at the Pahnoo army camp in Shopian, the PRO Defence Col Rajesh Kalia said on Sunday evening.

However, the Army alleged that they were over-ground workers of a militant outfit and were accompanying Dar.

"Three OGWs/accomplices in the vehicle who were accompanying the terrorist were also found to be dead", he said. "In retaliatory firing, one terrorist identified as Shahid Ahmad Dar was killed".

The army has confirmed the incident.

Police reached the spot and was carrying out legal formalities, he said.

In a similar incident in January this year, three civilians were killed by the Army in Chaigund village of Shopian after two militants were killed.

He said it was being ascertained whether the three youths were associates of the terrorist or not.

Locals identified the deceased as Suhail Khalil Wagay, Muhammad Shahid Khan and Shahnawaz Ahmad Wagay, all resident of Shopian district.

Meanwhile, a massive cordon and search operation has also been launched in south Kashmir's Shopian district.

Residents of the area, however, contested army's claims saying three of the four killed were civilians and not associated with any militant outfit.
