In another incident, an Indian policeman was shot dead by unidentified gunmen in Yaripora area of Kulgam district.

Meanwhile, hundreds of people including women and children were forced to spend the whole night in the open during an 18-hour long cordon and search operation by Indian troops in South Kashmir’s Islamabad district. Contingents of Indian Army, Special Operations Group and paramilitary Central Reserve Police Force drove in armoured vehicles to Islamabad and laid a siege around Lal Chowk area of the town. The troops during door-to-door search operations subjected inmates to brutal torture.
