Following the killing, the occupation authorities suspended mobile internet service in Islamabad district. Earlier, the troops martyred four youth, Salman Khan, Shabbir Ahmed Dar, Aashiq Hussain Ganai and Imran Ahmed Butt, and destroyed two residential houses during an over 15-hour long violent cordon and search operation at Panjran in Lassipora area of Pulwama district. This operation had started on Thursday evening and ended on Friday.

Thousands of people participated in the funeral prayers of the four martyred youth in their native areas in Shopian and Pulwama districts.

On the other hand, senior APHC leader and the Chairman of Tehreek-e-Hurriyat Jammu and Kashmir, Muhammad Ashraf Sehrai, in a statement issued in Srinagar said that Kashmir was a political dispute, which could not be resolved by military might. He said New Delhi needs to accept the ground realities and resolve the dispute politically. A meaningful and sustained dialogue, he added, is the way forward to stop further bloodshed and destruction in occupied Kashmir.
