Srinagar, June 12:

Six policemen were injured on Sunday in a militant attack in south Kashmir’s Kulgam district.


“Six policemen were injured when militants fired at a police party at Bonigam Qazigund (Kulgam),” a senior police officer told IANS in summer capital Srinagar.

“The police party was on a routine patrolling of the area when the militants attacked them,” the officer added.

The injured policemen have been shifted to hospital where attending doctors said two of them had sustained critical injuries.

In the last one month, militants have killed five policemen who were not deployed on counter-insurgency operations, but were doing routine policing like traffic control and management of law and order.

Most of such attacks have come against unarmed policemen. (IANS)
