Civilians marched towards an encounter site chanting pro-freedom slogans and started hurling rocks at security forces engaged in a gunfight with a lone militant holed up inside a private house at Puchal, in Jammu and Kashmir’s southern district of Pulwama, on Thursday.

Half a dozen civilians and three policemen, including the area Dy. SP, were injured in the clash. A report said the police opened fire after teargas and a cane-charge failed to disperse the stone-throwing crowds, injuring two persons. The police only confirmed that two civilians, Abdur Rehman Dar and Amir Ahmad Dar, “received injuries in their left arm and left thigh” and had been taken to a Srinagar hospital where their condition was said to be “stable”.
