Indian army ambush kills four in Kashmir

JRL calls shutdown tomorrow against civilian killings in Shopian

An Army spokesperson said the youths were overground militant workers, but local residents claimed they were civilians traveling in the auto.

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. The JRL has also called for a march towards Shopian, tomorrow, for the congregational condolence of six civilians martyred in Indian army firing on a private vehicle in Pahnoo area of Shopian district on Sunday night.

Police found a vehicle at some distance away in which three boys were found dead.

A militant and three others were killed in a gunfight after the Indian army was ambushed in the restive region of Kashmir, reported China's Xinhua news agency on Monday. "Police have reached the spot and started legal formalities", a statement from the army said. Suhail had hired the services of the other two boys to help him transport fruit carts into the cold storage. "He was hit on the back but there was no bullet in the back of the vehicle seat". "These individuals were accompanying the militant", the spokesman added, not identifying them as OGWs as was done on Sunday.

On the slain militant, the army's identification differed from that of the police.

It also said that the slain LeT militant Aamir Ahmed Malik was active since July 2017.
