Two militants gunned down in Kashmir
SRINAGAR: Indian troops overnight gunned down two members of the Lashkar-e-Taiba (LT) group, hours ahead of a visit to held Kashmir by India’s new army chief, an official said on Friday.
The two Lashkar members were shot dead late on Thursday in the northern town of Sopore, an army spokesman said. He said a Muslim woman and a soldier were injured during the fighting that caused tension in the bustling town. Sopore was cleared of militants in two major operations during the mid-90s that saw portions of the town reduced to rubble. afp
