India: 2 militants, 1 civilian dead in violent clashes with security forces in Kashmir

Two Hizbul Mujahideen militants were gunned down by the Indian police in Drabgam area of south Kashmir's Pulwama district on Monday as deadly clashes also claimed a civilian's life. Civilians were allegedly trying to repel the Indian security forces by throwing stones as they closed down on the militants' hideout making heavy use of teargas to disperse the crowds. The hideout was later set on... Еще fire as the Indian forces reportedly shot barrel grenade on site. The bodies of the slain separatist militants identified as top commander Sameer Ahmad Bhat alias Tiger of Drubgam and his associate Aqib Mushtaq Khan of Rajpora were later put to rest in a funeral procession attended by thousands of Kashmiris in the village of Arihal. «We want full independence from Indian occupation because they are oppressing us and we are not going to accept Indian brutality anymore,» a protester said as the procession called for liberation from the Indian rule. Since an insurgency erupted in 1989, Kashmiri separatists have demanded independence or a merger with neighbouring Pakistan.
