SRINAGAR - Top Kashmir leader ended a hunger strike on Sunday after authorities assured him they would work to stop the economic blockade of a Muslim-majority region by Hindu protesters. Hindus in Jammu, demanding the state government transfer forest land to a Hindu shrine trust, have attacked lorries carrying supplies to the Kashmir Valley. Muhammad Yasin Malik, chief of the Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front who began his hunger strike on Tuesday, agreed to end his fast on Sunday after authorities promised to intervene in the dispute. "I was assured no economic blockade shall be allowed and every effort will be made to keep the highway open," said Malik. Meanwhile, Indian troops shot dead a Mujahideen commander during a forest gunbattle that also left two farmers dead. The fighting took place overnight near Tangmarg, about 40 kilometers west of Srinagar, an Indian police statement said on Sunday. The area is at the foot of a mountain chain that marks the Line of Control.
