Reportedly, Bashir Lashkari carries a bounty of Rs 10 lakh on his head and is said to be the mastermind of the June 16 terrorist attack on a police party in the outskirts of Anantnag district of South Kashmir.

A woman and a young man were killed and several other people injured during anti-India protests and clashes in Indian-controlled Kashmir on Saturday following a counterinsurgency operation by government forces that killed two rebels in the disputed region, police said.

Police said, following specific information about the presence of Lashkari in Brinthi-Batpora, security forces cordoned off the area and launched a search operation early on Saturday morning. He added: "While the cordon was being laid, some militants outside a house fired upon security personnel which was retaliated".

After a brief exchange of fire, militants took refuge inside a home where civilians, including women, were also trapped.

Vaid said the slain militants had been identified as Bashir Lashkari and Azad Dada, both affiliated with the LeT.

"It was a long wait as the militants would not allow the civilians to leave the house".

A 21-year-old local youth identified as Shadaab Ahmed, a resident of neighbouring Kulgam, was critically injured in the security forces' action against surging crowds which while chanting pro-freedom slogans relocated to the encounter site in an attempt to help the holed up militants to escape.

Two civilians were also killed near the site of the gunfight where a stone pelting mob had gathered to disrupt the operation against the militants.

When confronted by security forces, the coward terrorists used civilians as human shields. However, in the end, the security forces prevailed and two terrorists were killed including the top LeT militant.

"17 people have been evacuated from the house", Inspector General Munir Khan said.

"After Indian army chief Bipin Rawat's threat, the graph of civilian killings has increased in Jammu and Kashmir, and the forces have been provided a license to kill at will", a joint statement by them said. Local authorities have suspended mobile and internet services in the area so as to curb rumours.
