Indian army calls off search for rebels in Kashmir
SRINAGAR, India (AP) - The Indian military says it has called off a search for suspected rebels near the disputed border with Pakistan after two weeks of battles in the Himalayan region of Kashmir.
Lt Gen Sanjiv Chachra says Indian troops faced repeated infiltration attempts at multiple points from militants who crossed from Pakistani-controlled Kashmir into the Indian-controlled portion.
He accused the Pakistani army of backing the infiltrators. Islamabad has denied the allegation.
Lt Gen Chachra said the Indian army killed eight rebels in the fighting, which ended last week.
