Srinagar: Five persons, including two policemen, were injured today as terrorists opened fire on a security forces’ party carrying out random vehicle checking in Kak Sarai area of the city, police said.
Security forces had established special check points in many parts of the city, a day after senior journalist Shujaat Bukhari and his two personal security guards were killed in a terrorist attack.
“During the checking of vehicles at Kak Sarai, terrorists opened fire on the cops, who also retaliated,” a police official said.
He said two cops and three civilians were injured in the exchange of fire.
Security forces have cordoned off the area and launched a manhunt for the assailants. (PTI)
