Suspected militant killed in Kashmir

AFP, New Delhi

A militant in Indian-administered Kashmir affiliated to a Pakistani-based militant group was killed by security forces in the restive territory yesterday, police said.

Asif Maqbool Bhatt belonged to Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT), a Pakistan-based group designated by the UN as a terrorist organisation, senior local police official Munir Khan told AFP.

“He hurled a grenade at the police team in Sopore region on Wednesday morning. He was killed in retaliation,” Khan told AFP.

Tensions have heightened in Kashmir since New Delhi stripped its part of the Himalayan region, split between India and Pakistan since 1947 and the source of several conflicts, of its autonomy of August 5.

India also sent thousands of extra troops to reinforce the 500,000 already there, detained almost all the region’s politicians, severely restricted movement and cut landlines, mobile phones and the internet. Some restrictions have since been eased.
