Two Indian soilders killed in Kashmir

indian soilders killed in kashmirSRINAGAR:an official on Wednesday told that, Suspected militants fatally shot two Indian paramilitary soldiers guarding a busy marketplace in Indian-administered Kashmir.

Anti-India sentiment runs deep in the disputed Muslim-majority region, where guerrilla groups have fought for Kashmir’s independence from India or its merger with neighbouring Pakistan since 1989. More than 68,000 people have been killed in the conflict.

spokesman for the Central Reserve Police Force Prabhakar Tripathi told that, Wednesday’s attack occurred in Pattan town about 20 miles north of Srinagar — the main city in the region — triggering panic among shoppers and merchants.

Since June, the region has been rocked by violent anti-India protests and subsequent crackdowns by government security forces that have killed at least 111 people — mostly teenage boys and young men in their 20s.

The attackers fled after grabbing the dead soldiers’ rifles, a police officer said on condition of anonymity as he was not authorised to speak to the media.

No group claimed responsibility for the attack.

While insurgent strikes have largely been suppressed by Indian forces, Kashmiri resistance is now principally through street demonstrations.
