A Lashkar-e-Tayiba terrorist and three civilians, termed overground workers for the terrorist group by the army, were killed in South Kashmir's Shopian district, officials said.
According to the army, two vehicles were asked to stop by a mobile checking squad of the force in this insurgency-affected area near Pohan.
However, the squad was fired upon from inside a car. 

Troops retaliated effectively, resulting in the death of the vehicle's occupants, they said.
Police rushed to the spot and identified one of the deceased as Amir Ahmed Malik, who had joined the LeT terrorist group in July last year.
The bodies of the others were handed over to their legal heirs, a police spokesman said.
"Weapons have been seized and legal proceedings initiated," he said.
However, Srinagar-based defence spokesman Col. Rajesh Kalia said the three were overground workers and accomplices of the slain terrorist.
The three were residents of Trenz, Pinjoora and Imamsahib areas of Shopian.
In a related development, separatist amalgam under the banner of Joint Resistance Forum has called for a Kashmir bandh tomorrow to protest the killings in Shopian. -- PTI
