AN Indian army court of inquiry, probing the killing of two civilians in Kashmir, has found three soldiers guilty of 'lapses'. The Indian defence ministry said that the inquiry had singled out a JCO and two other soldiers. The inquiry relates to the killing of two Kashmiris last month in Bumai. Local residents alleged that soldiers fired without any provocation and the deaths sparked mass protests. The army initially gave conflicting versions of the incident but finally ordered the court of inquiry. The military at first said that two unknown people masquerading as Indian soldiers had opened fire. Later it said the civilians had been caught in crossfire between troops and militants, reported BBC. Agencies add: Kashmir CM Omar Abdullah called for the repeal of strict security laws giving sweeping powers to Indian troops in Kashmir. "The special powers were granted to the army under an extremely unusual situation which arose in 1989-90," he told NDTV.
