Lal Chowk, in central Srinagar, Indian Kashmir, is currently the scene of a militant/police encounter at Hotel Punjab. Two militants are holed up in the hotel,according to police. A grenade was launched and the shoot-out has been going on for around seven hours, NDTV said. Lal Chowk is a central roundabout in the heart of town, in a congested area full of small shops. I know the area well. This is the first big encounter since 2006.
