Officials say four police officers have been arrested in Kashmir for alleged links with rebels fighting against Indian rule in the disputed Himalayan region.

The case is rattling Indian authorities who administer and police the tense region against insurgents who are fighting for independence or merger with neighboring Pakistan.

Police chief Rajendra Kumar says the suspected rebel links were discovered last week during a routine investigation into a recent shooting attack on a former militant.

Kumar said on Monday that authorities have arrested two intelligence officials and two low-ranking police officers, and that two more suspects are still at large.
