Kashmir: FIR Filed Against Army Over Killing of Two Civilians in Shopian

Pertinently, two youth were shot dead by the army after they (army) resorted to indiscriminate firing in Ganowpora, Shopian on Saturday.

"Injured persons were shifted to nearby hospital for advanced treatment". Like in previous tense situations, the issue of the controversial killings in the volatile border state looks set to snowball into a bigger crisis.

Divisional Commissioner Kashmir Baseer Ahmad Khan said a magisterial inquiry has been ordered into the killings.

Sitharaman told the chief minister that she would seek a detailed report in connection with the incident, he added.

Defence spokesperson Col Rajesh Kalia said around 3 pm "an army administrative convoy was passing through Ganaupura Chowk in Shopian in South Kashmir when it came under unprovoked and intense attack by a group of 100-120 stone-pelters". The huge mob surrounded an isolated portion of the convoy consisting of four vehicles. He was seriously injured.

The world number two recovered, however, taking four set points along with a match lead. "We both played very well". The world No.1 was 3-0 down when she arrived with total authority to win her first game of the match 40 to love.

The Army claimed that its men had opened fire "in self-defence" and that only after a 250-strong mob tried to lynch a Junior Commissioned Office (JCO) and snatch his service weapon. "They caused extensive damage to these vehicles and tried to set them on fire", said the statement. Two civilians succumbed to bullet injuries.

A senior police officer confirmed that an FIR was filed at the Shopian police station against the army's 10th Garhwal unit.

Mufti has conveyed her sympathies with the bereaved families at a time when outrage is pouring over the killings. After the tragic death of two Kashmiri youth, the Valley remained tensed and paralysed after a shutdown was called in by Kashmiri separatists.

Former chief Minister Omar Abdullah said on Twitter, 'Violence in Kabul is tragic.

State administration made elaborate security arrangements across the Valley today to prevent any kind of protests after 2 civilians died in Army action in Shopian on Saturday.
