Locals told Kashmir Reader that Farheen was a Class 12 student before he joined Hizb ranks in June past year.

Wani's death agitated the crowd further and it started pelting stones at a nearby Army camp, officials said. "It's hard to pinpoint which among the two, police or army, opened fire", the locals said.

Two persons received bullet injuries with one of them succumbing to his injuries at the hospital, they said. One of the two terrorists killed was identified as Mohd Furhan Wani.

The other injured, Yasir Ahmed Dar, 30, who was hit in the shoulder, is stated to be stable.
