Indian Army martyred nine Kashmiris


SRINAGAR: Indian Army martyred at least nine Kashmiris in two separate incidents in occupied Kashmir, authorities said Sunday, as a lockdown to prevent the coronavirus from spreading came into effect. Three Indian soldiers were also killed.

Indian army spokesperson Colonel Rajesh Kalia early Sunday confirmed the martyrdom of five Kashmiris in the northern Keran area close to the Line of Control (LoC). Several soldiers were critically injured, he added.

"The youth were killed during a continued violent operation in Keran area of Kupwara district," reported Kashmir Media Service.

The fighting came within 24 hours of another operation that had left four dead. Police had said all four were area residents.

India unilaterally revoked the region's constitutional autonomy in August last year and announced it is splitting it into two government territories: Jammu and Kashmir, and Ladakh.
