AFP, SRINAGAR: Suspected rebels killed two paramilitary soldiers and wounded another ten after attacking their convoy in disputed Indian Kashmir yesterday, a senior police officer said. The militants fired on the convoy transporting Border Security Force (BSF) troops near the town of Udhampur, 250 kilometres (155 miles) south of the main city of Srinagar. “We had two fatal casualties of BSF soldiers, ten were injured in the attack,” inspector general of police for the region, Danesh Rana, told AFP. One militant was killed during a gunbattle with government forces that followed the attack. Another was captured and four civilians taken hostage by him were rescued unharmed, Rana said. The attack comes a week after militants stormed a police station in neighbouring Punjab province, sparking an 11-hour gunbattle with officers that killed seven people. India accused the militants of crossing the border from neighbouring Pakistan to launch the attack, the first in Punjab in more than a decade.
