(22 Jun 2018) Police fired tear gas at rock-throwing protesters in Indian-controlled Kashmir on Friday, after a gunbattle between security forces and rebels triggered anti-India demonstrations.
At least four rebels, a counterinsurgency police official and a civilian were killed in the gunbattle in the disputed region.
Government forces raided a cluster of homes on a tip that rebels were hiding in the southern Srigufwara area and they came under fire from militants, police said.
Four militants and a police official with the counterinsurgency force were killed in the fighting, said Col. Rajesh Kalia, an Indian army spokesman.
Police said a civilian husband and wife were hit by gunfire as soldiers cornered the rebels in the couple's house
Police said at least two soldiers were also wounded in the fighting.
As the fighting raged, protests and clashes broke out nearby and in other neighbourhoods as residents tried to help the trapped militants escape.
Government forces fired shotgun pellets and tear gas at the stone-throwing protesters, injuring at least 20.
Authorities suspended cellphone internet service in several districts in the region, a common practice to make organising protests more difficult, and according to the government, stop the spread of rumors.
Large anti-India protests and clashes later erupted on the outskirts of Srinagar, Kashmir's main city, as thousands gathered to participate in the funeral of one of the slain militants who was from the area.
Protesters, chanting pro-rebel slogans and demanding the end of Indian rule in Kashmir, blocked a major highway and fought pitched battles with government forces.
Several people were reportedly injured in the clashes.
India and Pakistan have fought two wars over Kashmir, which is divided between the neighbours but claimed by both in its entirety.
