Two civilians, two Indian junior servicemen and four terrorists were killed on Sunday in the operation by the Indian security forces that took place in the Kulgam district. The accidental death of two civilians in clashes caused protests, later suppressed by police that used tear gas, bullets and pellets, according to the Hindustan Times newspaper.




The 24-year old civilian died of wounds after police opened fire at the protesters, deputy inspector general of south Kashmir SP Pani said.


The majority of the 21 wounded are out of danger, but the number of injured is likely to be higher, the newspaper reported, citing a medical official.
