SRINAGAR: Indian police and troops killed five suspected rebels in an overnight gun battle on Friday in a forested area of northern Kashmir. Police and an army contingent began a joint operation around midnight near the Najwan forests, 35 kilometers north of Srinagar, the summer capital of Indian-administered Kashmir. Police superintendent Shahid Meraj said all five rebels had come from Pakistan-administered Kashmir around a year earlier and belonged to Hizbul Mujahideen, the largest Kashmiri militant group fighting Indian forces in the region.
