A police official says the suspected insurgents attacked the convoy on the outskirts of Srinigar on Friday and then entered the grounds of the Silver Star hotel and continued firing. The three victims were hotel employees.

The police officer says a search operation was under way. He couldn’t be named because he wasn’t authorized to speak to reporters.

Several rebel groups are fighting Indian rule. None has issued statements on the incident.
