India says it killed three suspected rebels in last week's gunfight in the disputed region but families of the slain men say they were innocent and killed in an encounter staged by government forces.
One of the gun battles, near the Muslim-majority region's Srinagar city, resulted in the death of one insurgent and a nightlong stand-off with two others hiding inside a mosque. They were later "neutralised".
Indian security forces killed five and injured 10 others during protests against the killing of Pakistan-based Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Muzaffar Wani.
