Indian forces kill 62 militants this year in disputed Kashmir, police official says

According to a senior police source, Indian security forces have killed 62 terrorists, including 15 foreigners, in the disputed Jammu and Kashmir area this year.

Kashmir, which is claimed by both India and Pakistan but is administered in sections by both, has long been the location of an armed insurgency against New Delhi. Two of India and Pakistan’s three wars have been fought over Kashmir.

India accuses Pakistan of financing terrorist organizations seeking independence for Indian-administered Kashmir, which Islamabad denies.
