After Wednesday’s fight, police said they found an assault rifle and two pistols. Police have denied the family’s claims, saying the families do not know what their children are doing. “Usually parents do not know what their children are doing,” the police statement said.
Family members say their sons came out of the house the day before the confrontation. They protested outside the police control room in Srinagar. He said two of the three were students and had come to Srinagar for admission to an institution. A relative said he was at home until yesterday. How did he become a terrorist overnight and die in an encounter? ‘
