In the fiercest encounter in the Valley this year, seven people — two soldiers, four terrorists and a civilian sympathiser of the militants — were killed during a 10-hour gunbattle in Frisal village of militant-infested Kulgam district, 60km from J&K’s summer capital, on Sunday.

One more person was killed later during clashes between protesters and police.

While the security forces surrounded the house in Frisal village to flush out the terrorists, they were stopped by a barrage of gunfire from within, leading to a prolonged firefight in which four men — identified as members of Lashkare-Taiba and Hizb-ul-Mujahideen — were killed.

Ashiq Ahmed Rishi, the son of the house owner, was shot dead after he allegedly hurled stones at the soldiers as the encounter raged on.
