SRINAGAR (AFP) Two Indian soldiers were killed in a gunbattle with suspected freedom fighters Thursday along the Line of Control, the military said, as parts of Kashmir region remained under curfew. The gunbattle erupted along the LoC after soldiers engaged a group of infiltrating fighters, an Indian army spokesman JS Brar said. The latest fighting was reported from northern Machil sector. On Tuesday five suspected freedom fighters and three soldiers were killed in a similar gunbattle. Elsewhere in Occupied Kashmir, Indian troops continued to enforce a strict curfew in parts of the region as tensions remained high after the killing of 11 protestors by security forces during demonstrations this month. Dozens of women demonstrators, led by the regions prominent female leader Asiya Andrabi, defied the strict security lockdown in Srinagar and staged a noisy anti-India rally. The women later dispersed after police tried to block the rally. Later, dozens of young men present at the scene hurled stones at the police, sparking a clash that left six protesters and three policemen injured. Hardline Kashmiri leaders had called upon Muslim women to march to a revered mosque on Thursday but authorities sealed neighbourhoods and deployed thousands of troops, including women police, to block them. Police said strict curfew continued in northern town of Sopore for the seventh day running and in southern Anantnag town for the third day. Thousands of police and paramilitary forces also continued to enforce a security lockdown in northern town of Baramula, police said.
