A strict curfew was imposed across most of Indian-controlled Kashmir today, with thousands of troops fanning out across the region a day after a militant attack left five paramilitary soldiers dead in Srinagar.
The attack caused uproar in India's Parliament, where opposition MPs accused the government of not having used intelligence reports to protect the soldiers.
The two militants also died in Wednesday's assault on the paramilitary police compound.
One local man was shot dead by the paramilitaries when protests erupted over the attack and another was killed after being hit by a police vehicle.
The civilian deaths spiralled into larger protests, leading to the curfew.
No group has yet claimed responsibility for the attack.
