Officials said that three militants were reportedly hiding in the house. He claimed that the civilian died in cross firing between militants and armed forces. The third militant, however, managed to escape the spot. "We request people not to come out as the area is still not cleared".

The APHC spokesman in a statement in Srinagar said that the Indian police is denying meetings between prisoners and their families and unnecessarily creating hurdles in the release of the detainees. Their condition was however reported to be stable. She had received fire arm injury in abdomen, according to a senior official of District hospital Pulwama.
