Businessman Altaf Bhat and dental surgeon Mudasir Gul were killed in an allegedly anti-terrorist operation on a building complex in Hyderpora. Police initially claimed they were shot dead by terrorists, but later said they may have been killed in the crossfire.

The police said both men were “terror associates” – a charge that¬†provoked a furious reaction¬†from family members and critics of the Jammu and Kashmir administration.

One of those killed was Amir Magray, whose father Abdul Latief Magray killed a terrorist with a stone in 2005 and had received an Indian Army citation.

Meanwhile, family members have been protesting for the return of the dead bodies of the deceased.
