Police Kill 3 From Islamic Militant Group

From Times Wire Reports

Police killed three members of an outlawed Pakistan-based militant group in a gun battle on a highway outside Bombay, the nation’s financial hub, a senior police official said.

Bombay Police Commissioner Ranjit Sharma said the Lashkar-e-Tayyaba members opened fire when they were challenged by a police patrol. They were killed by return fire.

Lashkar-e-Tayyaba is an Islamic militant group that seeks the strife-torn Kashmir region’s independence from India, or its merger with Pakistan.
