In Srinagar, police stopped an ambulance and took custody of the body of a 23-year-old student, Zahid Rashid, killed in the protests.

People creating hurdles during anti-terror operations and displaying flags of Pakistan and ISIS in Jammu and Kashmir will be dealt as anti-nationals and will face "harsh" actions, the Army Chief said. On the other side, government forces razed the house where militants were holed up to ground by blasting it with IEDs.

Briefing ANI in Srinagar about the Budgam encounter, CRPF Deputy Inspector General (DIG) Dr. Sanjay Kumar said that the obstruction by the locals made their operation even more hard, as they were forced to divert their attention from the militants. The boy had been brought to a Srinagar hospital where doctors declared him dead. They leaders condemned the deaths the of three youngsters in Chadoora and also urged people to hold protests after prayers on Friday.

Andrabi said the killing of civilians "will certainly vitiate atmosphere of peace in the Valley".
