Security forces fire at violent stone-pelters in J&K’s Kulgam, 3 dead

Srinagar: Three civilians, including a teenaged girl, were killed when security forces allegedly opened fire at a stone-pelting mob during a cordon and search operation in a south Kashmir village on Saturday.

Senior police, army and paramilitary officers rushed to the spot to take stock of the situation

According to a senior police officer, residents of Hawoora and adjoining villages tried to disrupt the anti-terror operation as security forces cordoned off the area following inputs that a group of terrorists was hiding in Kulgam.

Three civilians sustained firearm injuries during the clash with security forces. The slain civilians were identified as Andleeb, 16, Shakir Ahmad, 22 and Irshad Ahmad, 20.

Besides three civilian causalities, several others were also injured, said the police official.

In order to contain the violent protests, senior police, army and paramilitary officers rushed to the spot to take stock of the situation.

Authorities immediately snapped mobile internet services in all the four south Kashmir districts of Kulgam, Anantnag, Shopian and Pulwama.
