Indian army ambush kills four in Kashmir

The whole of South Kashmir, which includes Pulwama, Shopian, Kulgam and Anantnag districts, has emerged as one of the most volatile areas after 2016 year-long protests.

The two militants were identified as Aamir Malik and Ashiq Hussain. A police officer described the situation as "very tense".

The Indian police have launched major search operations at two separate places in the Rajouri district, according to latest reports.

Bhat's body was found in an orchard in Saidpura village, about six kilometres from the site of exchange of fire. "Similarly, no train will chug on the Srinagar-Badgam line in central Kashmir to Baramulla in the north", a railway official briefed the media.

A terrorist and four others were killed as security forces said they responded to an attack on a mobile vehicle check-post in south Kashmir's Shopian on Sunday evening.

While the army called them "over-the-ground workers or accomplices" of the militants travelling in a Maruti Swift auto, the locals said they were just civilians.

He said police has reached the spot and started legal formalities. The locals, however, refuted the claim saying that the civilians had no connection with the militants.

Locals identified the deceased as Suhail Khalil Wagay, Muhammad Shahid Khan and Shahnawaz Ahmad Wagay, all resident of Shopian district. "Three more bodies were found in the vehicle amid the inquiry". Also the three OGWs/ accomplices in the auto who were accompanying the terrorist were found to be dead.

Hurriyat leaders Syed Ali Geelani, Yasin Malik and Mirwaiz Umer Farooq had called for a shutdown in the valley in protest against the "killings".

Schools, colleges and educational institutions remained closed on Monday due to the strike. Bhat was resident of Rakpora. Anger spread across South Kashmir as thousands shouted slogans and joined the last rites of those killed.

In a statement, he said Army needs to clear the doubts as that the people of Shopian believe that those died apart from militants were innocent and they were killed under the garb of encounter.

The locals alleged that the civilians were travelling in a auto through the area and were killed in reprisal by the Army following the militant attack.
