The civilians, Muhammad Ashraf Wani, Manzoor Ahmed Lone, Javaid Ahmed Najar and Javaid Ahmed Sheikh, were killed when Indian troops had opened fire on peaceful protesters in the area two years ago.

An eyewitness said that all shops and business establishments remained closed in the area while transport was off the road.
