Police in Indian-controlled Kashmir say two suspected rebels and a police officer have been killed in a gunbattle in the disputed Himalayan region.


Police officer Manoj Panditha says in addition to the dead, one Indian army soldier was wounded in the fighting on late Monday evening in the southern Kashmir village of Dodhiporao.

Panditha said on Tuesday that police believe these men belonged to the Pakistan-based militant group Lashkar-e-Taiba.

There has been no independent confirmation of the incident.
