Suspected rebels, Indian soldier killed in Kashmir
Two suspected rebels and an Indian soldier were killed yesterday in disputed Kashmir along the de facto border with Pakistan, where the two sides traded fire for a second day. Army spokesman Colonel Rajesh Kalia said Indian soldiers exchanged fire with unknown combatants as they tried to cross the Line of Control (LoC) into Indianadministered Kashmir. “Two bodies and three weapons were recovered from the site of the firing,” Kalia told AFP. In a separate incident an Indian soldier shot and killed his senior officer at a frontier post in Uri following a dispute between the two, Kalia said.
