india Updated: Aug 27, 2008 14:05 IST

The group spearheading the agitation in Jammu for the re-transfer of land to Amarnath shrine board on Wednesday postponed its public rally in the wake of the situation prevailing due to the killing of three people by militants.

The rally has been cancelled based on the request of the authorities in view of infiltration of militants and their attacks on outskirts of the city in which some people were killed," Shri Amarnath Yatra Sangharsh Samiti leader Naresh Padha said in Jammu.

The samiti had planned to hold a public rally at Parade Grounds in Jammu on Wednesday.

Three people, including an army officer, were killed and at least five others injured in Jammu on Wednesday by militants who had infiltrated into the Indian territory from across the border under the cover of firing from the Pakistani side.
