Militants attack CRPF convoy in J&K; kill two jawans, injure 10, gunbattle still on

Srinagar: At least two CRPF jawans were killed and 10 others were injured when militants opened fire on their vehicle in J&K’s Pampore region on Saturday, while security forces have cordoned off the area to flush them out.

About three to five militants have reportedly taken shelter in a nearby building after the attack.

The army was called in to help the jawans who have reportedly sanitized two of the buildings nearby which are said to have no civilians inside.

At least 10 Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) troopers were injured when guerrillas attacked their convoy on the Jammu-Srinagar highway near Pampore town in Pulwama district of Kashmir.

After the attack, the militants entered a nearby multi-storeyed Jammu and Kashmir Entrepreneurship Development Institute (JKEDI) building, a senior police officer said here.

“The building has been surrounded and an operation has been started to flush out the militants. Intermittent firing is going on,” the officer said, adding that the trainees and staff of the institute are being evacuated.
