Nisar Ahmed, along with Matto, was also killed.
Along with the bodies, arms and ammunition like two AK 47, six magazines and two pouches were also recovered by the security forces on Saturday morning.

Meanwhile, the joint separatist leadership has called for complete shutdown in the Valley today against the killing of two civilians in firing by security forces a day before.
