Two security force personnel were killed in a terrorist attack on a quick reaction team (QRT) on the outskirts of Srinagar. According to the police, the Quick Reaction Team came under indiscriminate firing by two-three ultras, who were travelling in a van, this afternoon at a crowded area in Khushipora of Parimpora.
Police said the two soldiers were critically injured in the sudden strike and were rushed to a military facility near Shariefabad camp where they succumbed due to their injuries. Since the area was densely crowded the troops restrained to avoid any civilian casualty and collateral damage
“Jaish has active movement here, by evening we’ll identify the group. Terrorists fled in a car and were armed. Two are probably Pakistani and one local,” Kashmir IG Vijay Kumar told news agency ANI. Security forces have cordoned off the area and launched a search operation to track down the assailants.
