2 people working with phone companies shot in Indian Kashmir

SRINAGAR, India (AP) -- Police say suspected separatists in Indian-controlled Kashmir have fatally shot a man in the latest attack on mobile phone companies.

Police Director General K. Rajendra says the attack late Tuesday on a man who rented out space for the installation of a government-run mobile phone tower followed a similar fatal shooting of a worker in a state-run store a day earlier.

On Sunday, suspected militants tossed two hand grenades at a mobile phone tower used by three private companies. Only one grenade exploded but caused no damage.

All the attacks took place in the Sopore area of the troubled Himalayan region.

Rajendra says initial investigations suggest that the attacks were carried out by militants fighting Indian rule in Kashmir.
