A pro-Pakistan militant group based in Indian Kashmir claimed responsibility on Wednesday for an attack that killed five members of a paramilitary police, a report said.

The Kashmir News Network (KNS), a news agency based in the main city of Srinagar, said that a spokesman from the Hizbul Mujahideen group called Baleeg-ud-Din had called to claim the attack.

"It was a guerilla attack and Hizb militants will carry on these attacks in the future," KNS quoted the spokesman as saying.
