Terrorists fired indiscriminately upon police party near Nowgam Bypass. Three injured were shifted to hospital, however, two of them succumbed to their injuries
At least two Jammu and Kashmir policemen were killed and one injured after militants opened indiscriminate fire on a police party in Nowgam district on Friday morning (August 14). Three cops were injured during the attack. They were immediately shifted to a hospital, where two of them succumbed to their death. Kashmir Zone Police tweeted, “Terrorists fired indiscriminately upon police party near Nowgam Bypass. Three police personnel injured. They were shifted to a hospital for treatment, where two among them attained martyrdom. Area cordoned off. Further details shall follow.”
While the militants managed to escape after the attacks, police and paramilitary cordoned off the area to trace and nab the terrorists involved in the attack. Friday’s military attack took place despite a security alert and heightened security in the valley in the wake of Independence Day on Saturday (August 15). Earlier on Thursday (August 13), security forces busted three hideouts of terrorists in Awantipora in South Kashmir’s Pulwama district during a raid conducted by Jammu-Kashmir Police along with 20 Indian Army’s Rashtriya Rifles (RR) and 130 Battalion of Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF).
