SRINAGAR: Indian troops have shot dead four suspected militants in Kashmir, two of them when they tried to enter the divided region from the Pakistani side, police said Thursday.
Two of the suspected rebels were killed early Thursday in northern Kupwara district when they tried to cross the Line of Control (LoC) – the demarcation that splits Kashmir between India and Pakistan, a police spokesman said.
He said two more suspected militants were killed in two separate gunbattles on Thursday in Kupwara and Kishtiwar districts.
Last week, infiltrating militants shot dead four Indian soldiers in the same district of Kupwara.
India says it regularly intercepts rebels sneaking into Indian Kashmir to fight New Delhi's rule in the scenic Himalayan territory. Pakistan denies Indian allegations it helps the insurgents cross into Indian Kashmir.
India and Pakistan have fought two of their three wars over Muslim-majority Kashmir, which each country holds in part but claims in full.
The insurgency against New Delhi's rule has left more than 47,000 people dead since 1989, according to an official count.

I do not see your comments. Why?
I thought they should be greatfull to the Indian forces for putting them on board for the flight to jannat where 72 virgins are waiting for them. No matter what good we do, it never seem to be appreciated.
@Bangash: haha, this guy is funny @Someone: then what you want?? they are terrorists, loll. first free balochistan, stop karachi killing, stop transporting terrorism, stop living in denial, respect other religions, improve your economy, do anything for stabilizing your country, clean wazeristan, khurram, learn to stand on your own feet, then i will give you Kashmir with my own risk, happy??
Hafiz Saeed has vowed that he too will will enter Kashmir. We are still waiting for your arrival.
@sumeet: "i dont have an iota of symphaty for what happens in kashmir " ....great, now how about getting rid of Kashmir and handing it over to pakistan
@Bangash Yes ,at first we care about country,our mother land and our resources .People comes second to nation,specially who support terrorists are nothing for us.
@Bangash: For your information kashmiri don't speak punjabi.
35,000+ lives lost in terror war, many in Karachi, crossing LOC, Fata, etc. Is this the value of a Pakistani life?
Kashmirs killed by Indian then called "infiltrating terrorists". Indians care nothing about Kashmiri people, they just care about land and water of Kashmir.
@Roflcopter: yaa, and the entire pakistan is full of freedom fighters, you are soo lucky :?
Rebels? Why pakistani media use this term?
First finish your job in Pakistan, and then enter India. You are not doing justice to your assigned job in Pakistan. You will be sent to China after completing all the assignments here and India.
@Munir from Srinagar, Kashmir: dream on baby, Kashmir belongs to India, and to terrorists -' pls get out from India
@munir,because of your such arrogant and stubborn attitude,you people will never live in peace.i dont have an iota of symphaty for what happens in kashmir because of people like you.your beloved freedom fighters trys to kill you at the first opportunity but delusional people like you see them as your idol.if u dont believe me, listen how terrorist handler tells his terrorist stooge to never believe any kashmiri and kill kashmiri at first instance in lollab encounter which intercepted voice sample is with ndtv.

India should expect more of this in future....they started the Kashmir genocide. The freedom fight is in full swing..inshallah we will break away from this evil oppressor state soon
@Bangash: less than the people killed daily in Karachi
Job well done.
How come the millitant speak punjabi? Do you have any answer for that? Oh! strategic asset . Fine.
"two of them when they tried to enter the divided region from the Pakistani side" - We are proud of you for protecting us from millitants. God bless you.
RIP freedom fighters
@Bangash, they were not kashmiri but they were (Pakistanis) militants who were crossing the LoC. Please read the news properly.
More Kashmiris killed by cruel Indian Army.
