Kashmir Event
Takes Toll

Tel Aviv (JTA) — An
Israeli tourist in northern
India was killed and at least
three others were wounded
last week in a gun battle
with Kashmiri Moslem
separatists, who took seven
Israelis and a Dutch woman
hostage.
One Israeli was reported
missing and a search for him
was under way.
The wounded were being
treated at the military
hospital in Srinagar in
Kashmir.
At least one Kashmiri was
killed and two or three may
have been wounded in a
battle with the Israelis they
abducted.
Although the Foreign Min-
istry withheld names pen-
ding notification of next of
kin, the dead tourist has
been identified as Eres
Kahane of Ramat Efal, just
outside Tel Aviv.
Physicians at the hospital
identified the wounded as
Elli Mamoun of Haifa, Yair
Frisch of Jerusalem and
Ya'acov Shemesh of Ramat
Hasharon, all of whom
underwent surgery for light
to moderate injuries.
A fourth person listed as
wounded was Ayala Ber-
man, but she apparently did
not undergo surgery.
The only uninjured Israeli
in the group apparently was
Haggai Caspi of Ramat Efal.
Kashmiri Police Chief J.N.
Saksina provided details of
the incident in a telephone
interview with Israel Radio.
He said the seven _Israelis
and the Dutch woman were
vacationing on a houseboat
on Lake Dal, near Srinagar.
Armed Moslems boarded
the boat, overpowered the
guard and bound the hands
of the seven Israelis and
their Dutch companion.
They were taken ashore in
a water taxi to a floating ho-
tel, where the women were
released. The six Israeli
men, all believed to have
had military training, freed
their hands and rushed their
captors.
They grabbed weapons, in-
cluding three assault rifles
and a hand grenade. Both
sides suffered casualties in
the ensuing battle. The
Israelis forced their way into
the home of a Moslem
clergyman and made him
call the police.
It is not known whether
the hostages were snatched
because they are Israelis or
whether the Kashmiris were
out to seize any foreigners to
bargain with the Indian au-
thorities.
