Four Hizb men killed by Indian troops

Published January 31, 2008

SRINAGAR, Jan 30: Indian police said on Wednesday that they had killed four alleged members of a militant group.

“Police backed by the army have shot dead four militants of the Hizbul Mujahedin militant group,” a police statement said.

The fighting erupted in a village early on Wednesday in occupied Kashmir’s southern Kulgam district, police said.

Hizbul is part of the United Jihad Council, which on Tuesday vowed not to use guns to force voters to boycott elections due later this year in the occupied territory and reiterated they were open to a truce.—AFP
