Terror returns to Valley: 3 cops killed; militants plan ‘next’ attack on Delhi



By Newsgram Staff Writer

Three terror strikes within four hours have killed three policemen in Jammu and Kashmir today.

The major attack took place when the policemen were ambushed on their way to a village in Shopian in the Kashmir Valley, to investigate a land dispute.

The police said the three, one head constable and two constables, were unarmed when terrorists opened fire on them.

Hours earlier, terrorists had shot at a police officer in a bus on its way to Pattan in Baramulla district. The terrorists first tried to hijack a bus but later abandoned the plan after the bus stopped in a traffic jam.

In the third incident, a civilian was injured in Tral in south Kashmir. The police said he was attacked on suspicion that he was an informer for the security forces.

A note found near one of them said, “We salute the martyrs who gave their lives for this attack. Next meeting in Delhi.”
