4 Policemen Killed In Terror Attack In Jammu And Kashmir’s Shopian

Four policemen were killed in an attack by terrorists on a guard post at Jammu and Kashmir’s Shopian district. The policemen were keeping watch on a residential area and were inside their guard room when the terrorists fired at them this afternoon. The terrorists also took away their service rifles.

Three policemen died on the spot; a fourth one who received critical injuries was taken to hospital, where he died during treatment.

The police said the area has been cordoned off and a search operation has been launched.

On Twitter, former chief minister Omar Abdullah condemned the attack: “I strongly condemn the attack on the police post in Shopian & condole the deaths of three police personnel in the line of duty. I pray for their souls & for the speedy recovery of those injured in this attack (sic)”.

Six Jaish-e-Mohammed terrorists led by former police officer Adil Bashir, who left the force after stealing eight rifles in October, were believed to be involved in the attack, the police said.
