SRINAGAR (Agencies) - Indian riot police fired teargas and used batons Friday to disperse hundreds of Kashmiris protesting the alleged rape of a married woman in the Held Kashmir, police and witnesses said. The woman from Muslim-majority southern Kulgam district alleged that she was abducted and subsequently raped by two armed men wearing army uniforms on Tuesday. On Friday, angry protesters set fire to a government vehicle and clashed with police, a police officer said, adding several protesters were hurt after police used teargas and batons. The protesters have retreated into narrow lanes and are targeting the policemen with stones and bricks, a witness, Ghulam Ahmed, said in Kulgam town, a two-hour drive from the regions biggest city Srinagar. A 30-year-old Gujjar woman from Gujjardara-Manzgam in Kulgam district told locals on Thursday that a group of Army men from the nearby camp pounced upon her when she was conducting ablution for prayers near her hutment, and took her away where she was raped by two army soldiers of 62 Rastriya Rifles. The woman had the other day lodged a police complaint accusing unidentified army personnel of abducting her on July 19 and gangraping her before being left off on July 21. The puppet chief minister of IHK said an identification parade of soldiers from the army unit stationed there could be held. The region was hit by massive protests in 2009 over the alleged murder and rape of two women in the neighbouring Shopian district. Federal investigators later said the two had drowned in a stream and were never raped. Police have registered a case and constituted a special team to investigate the latest incident, while the army has also launched its own investigation. If there is any truth in the allegation, then it is a criminal act against which strict action must be taken, the army chief of Occupied Kashmir valley SA Hasnain told reporters in Srinagar.
