Boths youngsters who were killed - Javid Ahmad Bhat and Suhail Javid - were in their twenties, while several others were left injured when the Indian military, which has often faced stinging criticism over excessive use of force in the region, opened fire in Shopian district in the state of Jammu and Kashmir. "The charges under sections 302 (murder), 307 (attempt to murder) and 336 (endangering life) are pressed", the officer said. "Considering the extreme gravity of the situation, the army was constrained to open fire in self-defence". "Within no time, their [the crowd's] numbers swelled to 200-250 persons", the statement said while adding that the protestors tried to set four vehicles ablaze. "The crowd further closed in towards the vehicle and attempted to set them on fire", read the Army statement.

The police have registered a case against the Army unit concerned in connection with the incident.

The State government has ordered a magisterial inquiry into the firing incident.

The Divisional Commissioner, Kashmir, has also appointed Deputy Commissioner, Shopian, Aijaz Ahmad to probe the firing incident and report with 15 days.
