Early Times Report

SRINAGAR, June 22: Four militants owing allegiance to Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), a civilian and a policeman were killed in an encounter at Srigufwara in South Kashmir's Anantnag district. Ammunition and incriminating material were recovered from the possession of slain militants.
Reports said that some civilians sustained injuries during clashes with the police and security forces personnel near the site of encounter. Condition of a few injured persons is stated to be critical at the hospital.
A police spokesman said that pursuing credible leads about the presence of militants in Khiram area of Srigufwara in District Anantnag, a search was launched by a joint team of Army, CRPF and Police in morning hours today in the area.
"As the joint patrol made an advance towards the suspected house, militants hiding inside fired indiscriminately on the security forces due to which a policeman Ashiq Hussain and a civilian identified as Mohammad Yousuf Rather, aged 53 son of Gull Mohammad Rather resident of Nowshahar Khiram, got injured and succumbed to their injuries," said the police spokesman.
The spokesman said that some more civilians also got injured and were shifted to hospital. He said that in the encounter, all the four militants were killed. He identified the slain militants as Dawood Ahmad Sofi, Majid Manzoor Dar, Aadil Rehman Bhat and Mohammad Ashraf Itoo.
"Dawood Ahmad Sofi aged 33; son of Mohammad Subhan Sofi, a resident of Zainakote-HMT Srinagar was involved in number of stone pelting cases in the area prior to joining the militant outfit. He was involved in a militant attack which resulted in death of ASI Ghulam Mohammad and HC Naseer Ahmad at Bagh-Ali-Mardan Khan in Zadibal and also in the killing of policeman and snatching his rifle at Tengpora-Batmaloo besides other militant attacks," said the spokesman. The spokesman said that Majid of Talangam-Pulwama also joined the militant gang and remained active along with Aadil of Shettipora-Bijbehara and Ashraf of Hatigam-Srigufwara Anantnag. He said that initially Dawood was known to be affiliated with Tehreek-ul-Mujahideen (TuM) militant outfit.
"This militant gang was active on social media and mostly attacked the policemen on duty at different places.
The social media profiling and inputs indicate that they were inspired by ISIS module.
Incriminating material and huge quantity of ammunition was also seized from the site of encounter. Police has registered a case in this regard and has initiated investigation in the instant matter," said the spokesman.
The spokesman said that militants this afternoon fired upon the security forces when they were handling law & order on Tral road.
Militants lobbed a grenade followed by firing on security forces from a crowd when they were busy with law & order duties on Tral road resulting in injuries to the nine security forces personnel.
"Security forces personnel exercised maximum restraint after being attacked by militants to prevent any civilian casualties. The injured security forces personnel were evacuated to the hospital for medical treatment," said the spokesman.
At the same time a wreath laying ceremony was held today at District Police Lines Srinagar to pay homage to police head constable Habibullah, who succumbed to his injuries after getting injured in a militant attack at Karan Nagar on Friday last. Civil and police officers led by Director General of Police S P Vaid laid floral wreaths on the mortal remains and paid rich tributes to the slain head constable.
Habibullah the lone bread earner of his family, is survived by three daughters Riffat Ara, aged 21 years whose marriage was scheduled next week, Insha student of 10th class, Rubeena student of 6th class, two sons Ghulam Mohi-ud-Din about 22 years old and Kaiser Ahmad Lone about 26 years old besides wife and aged parents.
