Indian Troops Kill Five Militants in Kashmir

  • VOA News

India's army says its troops have killed five Islamic militants as they tried to enter Indian Kashmir from Pakistani territory.

The military says the infiltrators were killed Sunday night in the northern Macchil district. It says a large cache of weapons - including AK-47 rifles and grenades - was found near the bodies.

The clash took place a day after Indian security forces killed three youths and seriously wounded a fourth, mistaking them for separatist insurgents.

Kashmir's chief minister, Mufti Mohammed Syed, has ordered a probe into the killings. He urged troops and police to avoid such incidents in the future.

Meanwhile in Srinagar, Indian police detained at least 20 separatists and their supporters demonstrating against the shootings. It was the second such protest in as many days.
