Injured in Clashes with Police in Protest of Killings in Kashmir

"Further investigation is on", a police officer said. Following the killing of Hizbul Mujahideen's militant commander Burhan Wani, hundreds of youth have joined militant ranks from these four districts.

Police and paramilitary forces were deployed to contain the situation after the separatist organisations called for a bandh on Monday.

Clashes were also reported from Anantnag at K.P. Road between students and police.

Hurriyat chairman said "as no responsibility is fixed for these killings and their is no accountability, the highly worrisome reality is that the lives of the people of Kashmiris is perpetually at great risk as they are the mercy of the forces". "Similarly, no train will chug on the Srinagar-Badgam line in central Kashmir to Baramulla in the north", a railway official briefed the media.

Two militants, one at the site of the shootout and another in an orchard, and four civilians were killed on Sunday when, according to Defence Spokesman Colonel Rajesh Kalia, a mobile vehicle check post near Pohan in Shopian signalled a auto to stop, but the driver refused to comply. Two weapons have also been recovered from the dead terrorists, said state's director general of police SP Vaid. In a statement, the JKPCC described the killings as highly painful and said the people were not satisfied with the Army's version.

Later, the army personnel recovered the body of a terrorist, who was identified as Amir Malik, a Lashkar militant and a resident of village Harmen in Shopian.

While Malik died at the encounter site, Bhat's body was found in an apple orchard in Saidpura village on Monday morning, the Army said.
