Three militants and one civilian killed in two separate incidents in Kashmir

A fifteen year old teenager, identified as Amir Nazir was killed by a bullet-hit when he was throwing stones to disrupt the anti-terror operations of Security Forces (SFs) against two hiding Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) terrorists at Padgampora in Pulwama District on March 9 morning, Director General of Police of Jammu and Kashmir (J&K), Shesh Paul Vaid said, reports The Times of India. Amir Nazir was part of a mob pelting stones when a bullet hit him in the neck. The incident happened despite Army chief Bipin Rawat's recent warning against those attacking SFs during anti-militancy operations of "tough action". The SFs came under intense attack from stone pelters, which forced them to open fire, leaving several injured. As SATP reported on March 9, two LeT militants, identified as Jehangir Ganai and Mohammad Shafi Wagay alias Ehsan, both locals from Koel in south Kashmir were also killed in the encounter.

In the meantime, a Hizb-ul-Mujahideen (HM) militant, identified as Mushtaq Ahmad Seergojri was killed and an Army major injured in a shootout near Police Station in Bandipora in Bandipora District on March 9 evening, reports Daily Excelsior. A joint team of Army and Special Operations Group (SOG) of J&K Police had laid a naka following specific inputs about the movement of militants. A militant who was travelling in a vehicle opened fire on Army in which Army Major was injured. In the retaliatory fire, the militant was gunned down. One pistol and a grenade were recovered from his possession.

The authorities placed separatist Hurriyat Conference (G) leaders, including Shabir Ahmad Shah, Muhammad Ashraf Sehrai, Ayaz Akbar, Raja Mehrajudin, Mohd Ashraf Laaya and Umer Adil Dar under house arrest following a strike called by them against the killing of civilian, adds Daily Excelsior. Security has also been intensified to prevent violence in Kashmir.

Meanwhile, Chief Minister, Mehbooba Mufti has expressed deep anguish and grief over the killing of a 15 year old Amir Nazir in Padgampora village of Pulwama District on March 9, reports Daily Excelsior. Extending her sympathies to the bereaved, the Chief Minister said it was highly unfortunate that youth are caught in the vicious cycle of violence in the State which has consumed so many precious lives and left behind a trail of death and destruction.
