Indian troops continuously violating human rights in IOK: FO

A group of militants was challenged by the alert troops on the Indian side of the LoC in Rampur sector.

The Indian army says soldiers have killed four suspected rebels along the highly militarized de-facto border that divides the disputed region of Kashmir between India and Pakistan.

On November 22 previous year, BATs had mutilated the body of an Indian Army soldier and killed two others while ambushing a counter-infiltration patrol along the LoC at the Machil sector of Kupwara district.

The clashes broke out soon after the congregational prayers ended at the Jamia Masjid and other nearby mosques and shrines, a police official said.

Army sources told CNN-News18 that an ambush was laid by troops at 7:30pm in Rampur Sector based on specific input. Another 2 heavily armed terrorists were killed in the Trai region of South Kashmir.

Earlier this week in a major cross border operation, the Indian Army blasted several Pakistani posts to stop infiltration. "After the melting of snow on the LoC in summer, the militants try to make most of the hard terrain by sneaking in the Kashmir valley".

The slain terrorists are of foreign origin, however, the army refused to identify the infiltrators as the search operation is underway. An Army spokesperson said the two intruders belonged to the BAT, and were trying to cross over into the valley.

Foreign Affairs Adviser Sartaj Aziz strongly condemned the killing of 12 youngsters in India-held Kashmir and urged the United Nations and the global community to bring an end to the bloodshed in held Kashmir, said a statement issued from the Foreign Office. BATs typically carry out attacks on Indian Army personnel before retreating to Pakistan. These men mostly entered through Keran, Gurez, Machil and Nowgam sectors.
