Kashmir Valley tense after Kulgam killings, Andrabi arrested

Kashmir Valley tense after Kulgam killings, Andrabi arrested

Over two dozen people were injured in these clashes.

An encounter is underway between security forces and terrorists in Bandipora district of Jammu and Kashmir.

Kashmir Valley was tense on Monday, a day after eight people including four local militants, two Army jawans and two civilians were killed and almost twenty people were injured in a fierce gunfight and subsequent clashes between irate crowds and security forces in a remote village of southern Kulgam district. Three militants escaped, the officials said. "This is how they have been treating people in Kashmir", another local said, wishing anonymity.

On being spotted, the troops, who were accompanied by the house owners, came under heavy fire in which two jawans identified as Lance Naik Raghuvir Sigh and Lance Naik Gopal Singh Badoria got killed. All shops, educational institutions, and petrol stations were closed while public transport was off the road in Srinagar and other parts of the Valley.

The suspected militants had taken refuge in Frisal village when they were surrounded by police and the military, officials say. The National Conference demanded an investigation into the encounter. "Security establishments hide the truth to stop demoralising their men", Hizb-ul-Mujahideen spokesperson Burhanuddin was quoted by GK as saying. "The youth are sacrificing their lives for a sacred cause and we will never compromise with their holy blood".

Seven people, including two soldiers, died in an encounter on Sunday in Kulgam, 70 km south of Srinagar. A civilian was also killed in the shootout between militants and security forces. He also slammed the Indian Army for using innocent civilians as human shields "to avoid casualties".
