Ruling party activist shot dead in Held Kashmir

SRINAGAR – Suspected Muslim militants Friday shot dead a 47-year-old ruling-party activist in Indian Kashmir, police said, while four people were hurt in fresh clashes in the insurgency-hit region. Ghulam Hassan was shot from close range at a market place in the southern township of Hajin, 40 kilometres north of Indian Kashmir’s summer capital Srinagar.
“He died spontaneously,” a police spokesman said, blaming militants opposed to Indian rule in the region for the late evening slaying. In fresh demonstrations against Indian rule, two policemen and two protesters were hurt in clashes in northern Baramulla town, police said, adding that senior separatist Shabir Shah was detained when he tried to lead an anti-India demonstration in Srinagar.
