SRINAGAR, Indian-controlled Kashmir, Aug. 23 (Xinhua) -- An Indian army trooper was killed in an accidental fire during a practice session at the field firing range in Indian-controlled Kashmir, officials said Thursday.

The practice was going on at the field firing range Wednesday in Khanpur-Nagrota in outskirts of Jammu city, the winter capital of Indian-controlled Kashmir.

"A trooper was hit by the bullet from his service rifle during the practice session yesterday," said a senior army official. " Though he was immediately rushed to hospital but he succumbed there to the wound."

The slain trooper was identified as Ravi Shanker of India's Bihar state.

A guerrilla war is also going on between militants and the Indian troops stationed in the region since 1989. The gunfight between militants and Indian army troopers in Indian-controlled Kashmir takes place intermittently.
