Two civilians were also killed and dozens injured when police opened fire on thousands of demonstrators who poured onto the streets, throwing stones and chanting slogans against Indian rule.

"The government has also continuously encouraged policies to mainstream the youth, including providing employment opportunities to wean them away from militancy", he said.

In all the three encounters in south Kashmir, people, mostly youth, attempted to march towards the encounter sites and pelted stones on the security force personnel in order to pave way for militants to escape.

According to a Kashmir Media Service report, search operations were conducted in Islamabad and Shopian districts of South Kashmir.

During the past year of the "Operation All Out" launched by the security forces to flush out terrorists from the valley, most of the militants killed belonged to Anantnag, Shopian, Pulwama and kulgam of South Kashmir but the yesterday's high death toll of boys from Shopian has alarmed the authorities.

Police and paramilitary troopers fired pellets and tear gas to disperse the protesters.

Separatists had called for a shutdown on Monday, which affected the normal life.

In an attempt to check the Anti-India protests, government authorities shut schools and colleges, a cancelled university exams, halted train services and cut cellphone internet access in the most restive towns, and reduced connection speeds in other parts of the Kashmir Valley.

Pakistan, it said, expresses its full solidarity with Kashmiris and "we urge global community to take cognisance of the gross and systematic violations of fundamental human rights".

"The forces are targeting everyone whether a protester or not", a local mother told Al Jazeera at a hospital in Kashmir's main city, Srinagar.

Separately, Pakistan's powerful army chief Gen. Qamar Javed Bajwa, said in a statement that violence against Kashmiri people "can never suppress a just indigenous political struggle for self-determination".

Anti-India sentiment runs deep in Kashmir, which in recent years has seen renewed rebel attacks and repeated public protests against Indian rule.

Rebels have been fighting Indian rule since 1989, demanding Kashmir be made part of Pakistan or become an independent country.

Kashmir has been divided between India and Pakistan since their partition and independence from Britain in 1947.

But The Associated Press, citing local residents, reports that Indian troops also live ammunition on some groups of civilian protesters.
