Militant complains of India army abuses in Kashmir

NEW DELHI, Nov 27 (Reuters) - A militant holed up in a Jewish centre in Mumbai phoned an Indian television channel on Thursday to offer talks with the government for the release of hostages, but also to complain about abuses in Indian Kashmir. “Ask the government to talk to us and we will release the hostages,” the man, identified by the India TV channel as Imran, said, speaking in Urdu in what sounded like a Kashmiri accent.

“Are you aware how many people have been killed in Kashmir? Are you aware how your army has killed Muslims. Are you aware how many of them have been killed in Kashmir this week?” (Reporting by Bappa Majumdar; Writing by Simon Denyer; Editing by Alistair Scrutton)
