SRINAGAR, India: Indian law enforcement officers killed two suspected militants in a gunbattle Monday in the Indian-controlled portion of the disputed Kashmir region, police said.
Indian police and paramilitary forces also trapped a third suspected rebel in the shootout in Sopore, about 55 kilometers (34 miles) northwest of Srinagar, the main city in Indian-ruled Kashmir, area Police Chief Abdul Qayoom said.
The clash erupted less than a week after a police officer was killed in another gunbattle in Sopore.
The divided Kashmir region, claimed by both India and Pakistan, has had a surge of violence in recent months as anti-India rebels step up demands for independence or incorporation into Pakistan.
