Three die in Kash­mir

Weekend Argus (Sunday Edition) - - WORLD -

SRI­NA­GAR: Two young men and a teenage girl were killed in dis­puted Kash­mir yesterday when gov­ern­ment forces fired at an­tiIn­dia pro­test­ers who dis­rupted a mil­i­tary-led op­er­a­tion against rebels, po­lice and medics said.

As sol­diers and coun­terin­sur­gency po­lice launched a cor­don and search op­er­a­tion in south­ern Red­wani vil­lage, hundreds con­fronted them, chant­ing and throw­ing stones.

Res­i­dents said sol­diers fired live am­mu­ni­tion, shot­gun pel­lets and tear­gas to quell the protests.
