JKLF chief Yasin Malik detained during protest against Shopian civilian killings

Many conflicts including stone-pelting emitted in Shopian as individuals turned out in the city to challenge asserted regular citizen passings in the south Kashmir locale on Sunday evening.

Police officials said they had initiated investigations into the incident.

Separatist leaders Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Yasin Malik called for a valley-wide protest shutdown against the killings. While the bodies of three civilians and one militant were recovered on Sunday evening, two bodies, one of a militant and other of a civilian, were recovered on Monday morning. The army has claimed that the civilians were over ground workers (OGW) of a militant organisation, while family members have negated the claims and alleged army of killing them in cold-blooded murder.

Jammu and Kashmir Board of School Education of Kashmir (JKBOSE) has also postponed all the examinations scheduled for March 6 and 7.

Notwithstanding the claim made by the Army of eliminating OGWs, Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti said they were civilians caught in the "crossfire".

Fearing protests by students, the government has ordered the closure of educational institutions across Kashmir that were supposed to open on Monday after winter vacations.
