Awesome photographs.!
The tepals are  3 + 3 in  sternbergia vernalis  : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sternbergia.  But in your photos it is 5.  Hence recheck the ID.

These are six only as can be seen in the 6th images.
Somehow, one of these has been missed while making a plate. 
Sternbergia fischeriana is reported from Kashmir as per CITES list, India Biodiversity Portal and Search Kashmir, which is a syn. of Sternbergia vernalis as per POWO.
To me id appears to be OK as per pacificbulbsociety, Plant illustrations, SEINetcitesbulbs
