Police: Militant Leader Killed in Kashmir

Police in Kashmir killed a commander of a leading separatist group fighting to end Indian rule in the Himalayan region, officials said Friday. Rafiq Ledri, 35, who police allege headed the armed wing of Ul-Umar Mujahideen, was shot late Thursday during a raid on his hide-out in Srinagar, the summer capital of the Indian state of Jammu-Kashmir, said Javed Gilani, a senior superintendent of police. “We acted on a tip-off and the operation was a success,” Gilani said. Ledri’s bloodied body was also identified Friday morning by one of his sisters in the police morgue, according to an Associated Press Television News cameraman who was present. The sister kissed Ledri’s head and pleaded with the police to release the body for burial before noon prayers on Friday, the Muslim holy day. Full Story
