Officials say three suspected rebels and a 45-year-old woman have been killed during a gunbattle between government forces and anti-India rebels in the main city in disputed Kashmir.
The clash in north Kashmir’s Baramulla district was the first to be reported by the authorities since New Delhi revoked the autonomy of the part of Kashmir that it controls and imposed a curfew earlier this month.
The gunfight took place Friday when a team of security officials was searching for the gang leader in a forest near the Rohingya camps at Cox's Bazar, said police Inspector Pradeep Kumar Das.
New Delhi has been stepping up counter-insurgency efforts in the disputed territory since the nationwide coronavirus lockdown was imposed in late March. The militants were killed in a firefight in the Zoonimar area of the densely populated old city of Srinagar.
The eye-catching picture from Maloora, Parimpora, in Srinagar, speaks volumes for the daily struggle Kashmiris face.
A police official said the operation is in progress and two terrorists have been neutralised in Chimmer area.
