Other young martyrs include Ubair Shafi Malla, Adil Thokar, Yawar Itoo, Nazim Nazir, Adil Thokar, Rais Thokar, Ishafaq Malik and Zubair Turay.
Security forces also clashed with stone-throwing youths in Dragad, Sugan and some other cities in Srinagar. New Delhi accuses Islamabad of supporting and funding the armed groups in Kashmir, claims that Islamabad denies.
The Indian media reports that the fighting began on late Saturday and ended in Anantnag’s Peth Dialgam area on Sunday morning. However, fighting in Dragad and Kachdoora still continued.
Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL) has called for a shutdown for two days across Indian occupied Kashmir.
Syed Ali Gilani, Muhammad Yasin Malik and Mirwaiz Umar Farooq are part of JRL.
In a similar vein, students from Kashmir University (KU) demonstrated against the killings and shouted anti-India slogans.
‘End Occupation, Free Kashmir’ read the banners carried by the students.
Pakistan's Foreign Office spokesman, in a tweet, condemned the Indian brutalities in the occupied state, saying "continuing Indian massacre of innocent Kashmiris makes a mockery of the HR Charter".
