Regarding the militants' claims that the security forces harass them and ransack their houses in south Kashmir, Raju said that allegations will continue because the militants are trying to show the security forces in a poor light.

One of the three Jaish-e-Muhammad (JeM) terrorists killed by the security forces late on Monday night in a fierce encounter was the nephew of Pakistan-based terror outfit JeM chief Masood Azhar.

One of the Pakistani militants, police said, was the nephew of JeM chief Maulana Masood Azhar.

Three JeM militants and a soldier were killed in the gunfight that began around 6pm in Kandi Aglar village. Two others, an army man and a civilian, were injured. "Encounter is going on", said a police spokesman.

Geelani sent a Tehreek-e-Huriyat deputation led by Mohammad Owais, Sajad Ahmad and Mohammad Iqbal to visit Drubgam Pulwama to participate in funeral prayers of slain youth and addressed mourners.

Several militants appeared at the funeral and offered multiple rounds of gun-salute. The third militant killed with them is Waseem Ganai, a local Kashmiri. Talha and Mohammad were "A" category militants.

"It's actions are also doing material harm to the health of a China-India relationship already under duress", he said.

A policeman was killed and another was injured in the attack.

Sources said that some youths pelted stones at an army camp in Yaar area of Pulwama district early Tuesday morning.

Internet services were restored in the district in the afternoon.

IGP Kashmir zone, Muneer Khan said: "We will ask Pakistan to collect the body of Masood Azhar's nephew as JeM has owned it".

"Local news agency GNS said the killed militant was Jaish's divisional commander Talha Rasheed and that the spokesperson of the terrorist group confirmed his identity to them". He said around 16 to 20 JeM militants were still operating in the Valley.
