Kashmir militants 'shoot couple'

16 March 2006

London: Police in Indian-administered Kashmir say suspected militants have shot dead a 52-year-old man and his wife in Bajja village in Jammu's Doda district. Armed men forcibly entered Abdul Gani Mallik's house late on Wednesday night and killed the couple, PR Manhas, the district police chief told the BBC. He said the militant group Hizbul Mujahideen was probably responsible. The couple's son-in-law was a member of the group before surrendering last month, Mr Manhas said.
