Kashmiri reporters protest India shooting, two fighters killed

Indian troops killed two suspected fighters in Kashmir on Friday, a day after a nearly 24-hour siege at a hotel that left four people dead, police said.

Indian police accused one dead man of involvement of police killing, without naming what they call the fighters

Police claimed they belonged to the pro-Pakistan group Lashkar-e-Toiba, and they were killed during a gunbattle in Andrusa village, about 20 kilometres (12 miles) south of Srinagar.

Meanwhile, members of Kashmir based media held a protest against a shooting incident in Srinagar by an Indian police.

An Indian police officer shot and injured Aman Farooq, a news photographer working for a local newspaper during the hotel siege.

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. Kashmiris say fight against India since it rejected to hold referendum in Kashmiri territory.
