Rebels Kill at Least 8 in India, Kashmir

Rebels trying to disrupt India’s parliamentary elections killed at least eight people and wounded at least 20 across India and Kashmir on Sunday, a day before the next phase of the staggered voting. Suspected Maoist rebels from the People’s War Group shot and killed three farmers and wounded another in Adai village in eastern Bihar state, police officer Sanjay Singh said. Adai residents had defied the rebels’ call to boycott the first round of polling held April 20, Singh said. Adai is about 30 miles south of Patna, Bihar’s capital. Maoist rebels in the state have threatened to attack anyone participating in the campaigning or the parliamentary elections, which will be held in phases through May 10.

The victim belonged to the state’s ruling Telugu Desam Party, police said. Full Story
