"The operation has been called off after no militant bodies were retrieved from the debris of the blasted house", a police official said.

A soldier was martyred and three civilians killed as terrorists clashed with security forces on Wednesday in Jammu and Kashmir's Kulgam district, triggering violent street protests.

Sources said the stone-pelting, which helped terrorists flee, was so intense that security forces had to retreat. The police official said that the gunbattle broke out between the militants and security forces in the early hours today. Two other security personnel were also injured. It was not immediately known how the deceased got injured, they said. The casualties were reported amid an ongoing gunbattle with the holed up militants.

"Army had even used helicopter gunships to fight out the militants".

"Four civilians identified as Sarjeel Sheikh of Khudwani, Bilal Ahmad Tantray of Frisal, Faisal Ilahi of Shopian, Aijaz Ahmad Palla of Bijbehara who were injured in the crossfire have also succumbed to their injuries", the police said in a statement.

This is the second time that four civilians have been killed by security forces near encounter sites.

Sixty injured were shifed to PHC Qaimouh while 18 were admitted in Kulgam and Anantnag hospitals out of which 8 were referred to Srinagar hospitals.
