"Unfortunately, one boy was also killed in the cross-fire and two ladies sustained injuries," he added. The security forces continued to search for more militants in the area.
The teenager, identified as Shakir Ahmad, 17, was killed and two girls were injured when protesters pelted stones at the security forces to disrupt the operation against the militants. The security personnel then opened fire.
