SRINAGAR: Three suspected militants were killed in India-held Kashmir on Thursday, in the fourth such incident along the Line of Control in five days.
The ‘militants’ were killed near an Indian army post after they allegedly crossed the Line of Control in Uri sector, police said on Twitter.
The latest incident came four days after Indian soldiers fired on and captured a suspected militant in Rajouri sector.
A spokesman said the injured `militant’ was being treated at an Indian army facility after “soldiers donated blood to help save his life”.
On Monday, two suspected militants were killed in a minefield in Akhnoor, while a third person managed to flee.
Another group of “three to four” men fled the same day in the same area when “soldiers confronted them”, the spokesman added.
Two suspected militants stormed an army camp in Rajouri earlier this month and killed five Indian soldiers before being shot dead.
