He said that a search operation was going on to try and get hold of the other militants, believed to be two to three in number.

Locals told Kashmir Reader that Farheen was a Class 12 student before he joined Hizb ranks in June previous year.

Some civilians pelted stones at an Army camp in Kudwani, even as few militants hidden in the mob fired at it, claimed police.

Reports said that Khalid was hit by a bullet in the chest and succumbed to his injuries. "He is stable", Kochak said.

As a precautionary measure, internet services have been suspended in south Kashmir, further said the police official.
