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.
