Two people including a police officer were killed in a gun battle between militants and security forces in Indian Kashmir, police said Wednesday.

The clash in north Kashmir’s Baramulla district was the first to be reported by the authorities since New Delhi revoked the autonomy of the part of Kashmir that it controls and imposed a curfew earlier this month.
