Three Army personnel injured in grenade attack

Srinagar: Three Army men were injured today when terrorists attacked an Army patrol party in Shopian district of Jammu and Kashmir, police said.

 

Terrorists lobbed a grenade on a group of Army personnel when they were busy opening the Good Will Public School in Ahagam area of Keegam village in Shopian this morning followed by firing on Army personnel, a police spokesman said here.

He said in the incident, three Army personnel sustained injuries and were subsequently evacuated to a hospital. Their condition is stated to be stable.

He said the Army personnel exercised maximum restraint to avoid any damage to the civil population and students around.

Police have registered a case and searches to nab the terrorists have been initiated in the area, the spokesman said.

Meanwhile, in a separate incident, one terrorist was killed in an encounter near Tregam area of Kupwara district in the wee hours on Friday. Army spokesperson in Srinagar said the encounter took place around 5:30 AM. The identity of the terrorist and the outfit he was affiliated to is yet to be ascertained.

Security in Jammu and Kashmir has been beefed up ahead of the Amarnath Yatra which began on Thursday.

“South Kashmir has been on the boil over the past year— both in terms of militancy-related incidents and law and order problems. We have formed a two-pronged strategy to ensure pilgrims are not affected by these kinds of incidents,” an official said.
