SRINAGAR: Five militants were killed in a fierce gun fight with security forces at Kiloora, a remote village of Jammu and Kashmir’s southern Shopian district, overnight, the official said on Saturday. Soon after the funeral of one of the slain militants Arshad Ahmed held in his native village Ganowpora Balpora, at least, one civilian identified as 24-year-old Bilal Ahmed was killed and several others were wounded when the Army opened fire on a violent mob.

Confirming the incident, J&K’s Director General of Police, Shesh Paul Vaid, said, “The youth among the mourners hurled stones at the Army which reportedly retaliated by opening fire resulting in the death of one civilian and injuries to one or two others”. The local, however, alleged that the Army opened fire “without any provocation.”

 

Militants carrying AK 47 rifles were seen also at the funeral of another slain militant Waqar Ahmed Sheikh in Shopian to offer him a gun salute. Among them was Muhammad Naveed Jutt alias Abu Hanzalla, a Pakistani national from Sahiwal and a senior commander of Lashkar-e-Tayyaba.
