Army chief general Bipin Rawat has called upon all Kashmiris to condemn the killing of the young Kashmiri Army officer, Lieutenant Ummer Fayaz, who was kidnapped and killed by gunmen in Shopian district on Wednesday.

"All the efforts and the hard work done under operation Sadbhavana by the Army to win over the trust of the locals has virtually washed off, as the Army is now facing hostile local crowds at the encounter sites", said Dr Aaliya Ahmed, a teacher at MERC, University of Kashmir.

Hizbul Mujahideen chief Syed Salahuddin has blamed the "Indian agencies" for killing Indian Army officer Ummer Fayaz who according to him belonged to a " pro-freedom family". "Kashmiris must think that if they can kill a Kashmiri boy, then they can kill anyone", Kadyan told IANS.

The sources said that the team was involved in the recent weapon snatching case in Shoupan Court complex, and the recent attack on the deputy SP in Shopian.

They were from Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) and Hizbul Mujahideen, they said, adding security forces were carrying out searches in various areas to nab the militants.

"So, a joint effort is being made by the army, the police and the civil administration to ensure that this scourge of militancy does not spread", the Army commander said.

".The life is going on normally, the schools are functioning normally in 95 per cent of the schools. It is not even a cordon", General Rawat said.

"There are four to five colleges, 40-50 students who create ruckus".

More than 500 people, including at least 100 ex-servicemen, participated in the march that began around 7pm.

"Also, whenever operations will take place, we will ensure no harm to the civilians".
