SRINAGAR (India) – SUSPECTED Muslim rebels ambushed army soldiers early Friday in the Indian-controlled portion of Kashmir, killing two troops, an official said.
Soldiers, acting on an intelligence tip, launched a search operation Thursday night in a village in the remote and mountainous Kishtwar region, about 170 kilometers southeast of Indian Kashmir’s main city Srinagar, said Lt. Col. Biplab Nath, an Indian army spokesman.
As the soldiers entered the area early Friday militants opened fire, triggering a fierce gunbattle in which two soldiers were killed, Nath said.
