Three rebels killed in IHK

15 January, 2014

SRINAGAR: Indian security forces killed three suspected rebels in the Occupied Kashmir on Monday during an ongoing gun battle, police said.

Soldiers and police special forces cordoned off a village northwest of the main city of Srinagar on suspicion that rebels were hiding inside, sparking the mid-afternoon gunbattle, a police officer said.

The battle at Dangerpora village just outside the town of Sopore, 45 kilometres from Srinagar, was still going on, police superintendent Abdul Qayoom told AFP. "We have seen three bodies so far. Two more (rebels) could still be engaged in fighting," Qayoom said.

The firefight comes one week after rebels killed a senior counter-insurgency police officer and wounded three others in the same area. Sixty one government security officers were killed last year in the fighting, compared to 47 officers for all of 2011 and 2012 put together, according to figures released recently by authorities.

A total of 63 militants were killed in Indian-held Kashmir last year.

End.
