A gunbattle with militants in disputed Kashmir has left four Indian troops dead. It comes just days after the worst attack on government forces in the region’s history, to which India promised a “jaw-dropping” response.
At least four Indian soldiers were killed in a shootout with rebels in India-administered Kashmir on Monday.
The deadly clash took place in South Kashmir’s Pulwama district as soldiers searched the area for militants tied to the Pakistan-based Islamist group Jaish-e-Mohammad.
Two militants and a civilian were also killed in the firefight, police said.
