A delegation of Jama'at-e-Islami Jammu and Kashmir on Monday visited Kulgam and Islamabad and paid "homage" to those who were killed in Frisal gunfight.

The military claimed to kill four 'militants during the cross fire.

IGP said that the house-owner Ashfaq Majid Rishi got killed in the cross-firing as he could not be evacuated successfully.

Police stated that it had no "easy" solution to control people on such occasions, saying that they are massively interfering in its "anti- militancy" operations. The terrorists are believed to be holed up inside a house.

The slain soldiers have been identified as Lance Naiks Raghubeer Singh and Bhandoriya Gopal Singh, both from 1 Rashtriya Rifles.

Bhandoriya, 33, is survived by wife B Hemavati, while Sepoy Raghubeer Singh, 31, is survived by wife Rekha.
