Indian army: 4 suspected rebels killed in disputed Kashmir

Foiling a major infiltration bid along the Line of Control (LoC) in Uri sector here on Friday, the Indian Army has gunned down two Border Action Team (BAT) terrorists.

"With the strapping of an innocent Kashmiri young man by an officer of Indian Army to the bonnet of an army vehicle and parading him for hours through a dozen villages, the abysmal Indian human rights record in Jammu and Kashmir has come down to a new low", the statement said. "The operation is continuing", said Colonel Rajesh Kalia, the defence spokesperson in Srinagar.

Separately, a gunfight erupted early on Saturday between militants and security forces in southern Tral area, police said. They were spotted on the Indian side around 8:40 AM in South of Jhelum in the Uri sector.

One AK-47 rifle, one pistol and other warlike stores were recovered, they said.

The encounter is still underway at the LoC.

On detecting the fleeing intruders, the soldiers chased them and in the ensuing firefight, both were killed around 100 metres from the Indian post, said sources.

On May 21, the Indian Army foiled an infiltration attempt in the Nougam sector of North Kashmir by killing four terrorists.

"Don't see the situation of two or three months to judge the situation in Jammu and Kashmir".

The incident triggered fresh tension along the LoC, particularly in Jammu region. These terrorists mostly infiltrated from Keran, Gurez, Machil and Nowgam sectors.

The Pakistani troops on May 1 had targeted two forward posts of the Indian Army with rockets and mortar bombs. "With the change of strategy of the Indian side (wherein we will be on the offensive, we will dominate the Line of Control (LoC)), this is the first time when the BAT tried to ambush the Indian Army patrol and the result is there for all to see", Sehgal told ANI.
