Kashmiri protesters throw stones towards Indian forces during clashes in Srinagar

A police statement said Gilkar had played a key role in the lynching of DySP Mohammad Ayub Pandith in Nowhatta on June 23, besides a number of other terror-related incidents.

The joint resistance leadership on Wednesday paid tributes to slain militants killed in Budgam and condemned restrictions imposed by government forces to prevent people from participating in funerals.

In today's incident, three militants of Hizbul Mujahideen were slayed by security forces in Radbug area of Kashmir's Budgam.

As per police sources quoted by IANS, the militants opened fire at the security forces when the cordon around the house in which they were hiding was tightened.

"Restrictions have been imposed in police station areas of Maharajgunj, Safakadal, Rainawari, Nowhatta and Khanyar as a precautionary measure to maintain law and order", a police official said. The security forces returned the fire and killed all the three.

Referring to remarks made by the India's Minister of State for home, Jitendra Singh at a press briefing in Srinagar on Wednesday, the leadership said, "Resorting to nationalistic rhetoric, denial of ground realities, and degrading the resistance leadership will not help in changing the grave situation in Kashmir for better". The holed up militants also rushed out from their hideout firing indiscriminately in a bid to break the cordon, reports claimed. Reportedly, an AK-56 assault rifle, an SLR, a pistol and seven magazines were among those recovered. "Several persons were injured during the clashes".

Authorities have also suspended Internet services on mobile phones in Srinagar and Badgam to prevent spread of rumours by anti-social elements.
