The body of one terrorist - Amir Ahmad Malik - was recovered. He fell down from the vehicle, which travelled some distance and veered off the road. According to the police, the militant was Aamir Ahmed Malik, a resident Shopian's Harmeen village. The body of the fourth person, a student, was found in another vehicle this morning. "These individuals were accompanying the terrorist".

The army claimed recovering one AK-74, 3 magazines and 88 rounds from the dead militant.

Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Yasin Malik termed the Shopian incident as "another example of brutal Indian aggression" in a joint statement and called on people to march to pay homage to the dead.

Kashmir plunged into widespread chaos on Monday as thousands clashed with security forces to protest the killing of four "civilians" that left the Army and J&K Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti sparring. The Srinagar-Banihal train service was suspended while internet services remained snapped in the two districts. All the schools and colleges have been closed while exams which were scheduled for Monday have been postponed. In major parts of the Srinagar city as well as major towns and villages of the Valley, restriction have been imposed. Half a dozen militants were also seen offering the congregational Nimaz-e-Janaza of the slain commander.

In January, anti-India protests erupted across Kashmir after soldiers killed three civilians during clashes in the same area.
