KASHMIR, INDIA, December 2, 2001: Seven Hindus en route to a wedding in Udhampur district were massacred by Islamic guerrillas in the southern mountains of Kashmir, adding to the 19 deaths in overnight violence. In New Delhi, a defense ministry source said that a "pro-active" plan was being put in place to quell Islamic raiders in Udhampur, home to thousands of Hindus. Elsewhere in Muslim-majority Kashmir, 16 separatists, two female civilians and an Indian army major were killed. Twenty-one houses and a school were destroyed in unabated gunbattles between Indian soldiers and the guerrillas. The Indian government warned that Taliban militia on the run in Afghanistan's southern Kandahar district could cross into Kashmir via Pakistan and push up bloodletting in the territory.
