SRINAGAR (AFP) - Police in Kashmir fired teargas Saturday to disperse thousands of villagers protesting against what they said was the staged killing of three Muslims by the Indian security forces. Late last month, the military said it had foiled an infiltration bid by killing three militants along the Line of Control in Kashmir. But three families in the northern district of Baramulla said the slain men were 'innocent relatives who had gone missing three days before. On Friday, authorities ordered a probe into the incident and also exhumed the three bodies, which were found to be those of the missing men. Thousands of villagers Saturday took to the streets of the mens home village in Baramulla, chanting: 'We want freedom and 'Hang the killers. Police fired teargas shells and baton-charged the demonstrators. Eyewitnesses said 14 people were hurt in the clashes. We had to use force as they wanted to block the main highway, one police officer said. The Indian army has ordered an internal inquiry into the killings, and police said they have made arrests. We have arrested three people, including a soldier and questioned four others, police officer Altaf Ahmed said. Former chief minister Mufti Mohammed Sayeed called Saturday for the repeal of strict security laws giving sweeping powers to Indian troops.
