One rebel, three civilians were killed, when rebels attacked a mobile check post of the Indian army in Pohan area of Shopian in south Kashmir this evening, the army said.

However, the Army alleged that they were over-ground workers of a militant outfit and were accompanying Dar.

Defence spokesperson Colonel Rajesh Kalia said, "A joint MVCP was sacked by the terrorists in Pahnoo village in Shopian district at 8 pm today (Sunday)".

According to reports, a joint mobile vehicle check post (MVCP) near Pohan was attacked when the security forces signalled a auto to stop in Shopian, but it did not.

The Army could not immediately furnish the details of the circumstances in which the accomplices were killed.

He said it was being ascertained whether the three youths were associates of the terrorist or not.

The Army said local police have started legal formalities.

All the three were locals and residents of Trenz, Pinjoora and Imam Sahib areas of Shopian.

"Body of the militant was recovered along with a weapon", he said, adding, "Three OGWs accompanying the militant in a auto were also found dead".

The locals alleged that the civilians were travelling in a auto through the area and were killed in reprisal by the Army following the militant attack.

However, the Supreme Court put an interim stay on criminal proceedings against Major Aditya and directed the government that no coercive action be taken against him in the incident.
