The assistant professor at Kashmir University was shot dead along with a top Hizbul commander, once considered close to terrorist Burhan Wani, by security forces in Jammu and Kashmir's Shopian today morning.

The victims of Indian terrorism in Shopian, today, were identified as Kashmir University Professor Doctor Muhammad Rafi Butt, Saddam Ahmad Paddar, Bilal Ahmad Mahand, Aadil Malik, Tausif Ahmad Sheikh, teenager Asif Ahmad Mir, Aadil Ahmad Sheikh, Sajjad Ahmad Rathar, Nasir Ahmad Kumar and Zubair Ahmad Negroo.

Five civilians including a teenage boy were also killed in clashes near the site of encounter.

An Indian policeman and an army officer were reportedly injured in the firing in the same area.

He had also written to the Director General of Police, requesting him that all efforts be made to trace Bhat's whereabouts.
