Three teenagers including a 12 years old girl Andleeb were killed and five others injured in army firing during Cordon and Search Operation (CASO) in Hawoora area of Redwani in south Kashmir’s Kulgam district on Saturday.

Andleeb, a 7th standard student, died on the way to the hospital.  According to Andleeb’s family, she had stepped outside her home on Saturday afternoon after listening to the shrieks and wails of the village women. Shakir Khanday, 19, whose house is next to theirs, had been shot by army personnels. Shafkat ahmad, a relative of hers said that “Like others, Andleeb had come out to see what had happened but before she could make sense of it, the army fired at her. “There was blood all around and both Shakir and Andleeb were taken to a hospital nearby (Frisal, yaripora) but by that time they had already breathed their last.”
