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

IANS quoted a police officer as saying that 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 militants was hiding there.

Three civilians sustained firearm injuries during the clash with security forces.

The deceased civilians were identified as Andleeb (16), Shakir Ahmad (22), and Irshad Ahmad (20).

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.
