Four militants killed in Kashmir

Srinagar, August 10, 2009:

Four insurgents were killed in an encounter with Indian army in Indian-administered Kashmir Monday, a defence spokesman said.

The gunfight took place in Mahore area of Reasi district, 160- kilometers north of Jammu, the winter capital of Indian-administered Kashmir.

"The encounter broke out this morning when army cordoned Mahore area of Reasi district to nab the militants. The militants opened a fire on the search party. So far four militants have been killed in the standaoff between Indian army and militants, said defence spokesman in Jammu, Lt. Col Biplab Nath.

The gunfight was going on in the area when the reports last came in.

Last week more than a dozen militants were killed in different gunfight with Indian army, close to line-of-control (LoC) in the region.

Indian has expressed concern over what it claims a sudden rise in infiltration across the line of control.
