Indian policeman killed, 8 wounded in Kashmir

An Indian policeman was killed and eight were wounded on Wednesday in a gunbattle between soldiers and suspected fighters in the heart of Kashmir's main city, police and witnesses told Reuters news agency.

The fighting took place in Lal Chowk, the main business centre at the heart of Srinagar, Kashmir's summer capital, and fighting was continuing, police said.

In 1948, the United Nations adopted a resolution calling for a referendum for Kashmir to determine whether the Himalayan region should be part of India and Pakistan. But India has rejected to hold referendum in Kashmiri territory.
