Sub inspector killed as terrorists open fire at CRPF team in Srinagar

A sub inspector died and two jawans were injured after the terrorists opened fire in the high security zone located less than a kilometre from headquarters of Army's Chinar Corps. The deceased was a sub-inspector of CRPF.

The gunfight between militants, holed up in famous educational institution (Delhi Public School) and joint team of forces started wee hours and since then it continues unabated.

Sources said security personnel fired RPGs, mortar shells and used heavy machine guns besides assault rifles to flush out the militants from the school building.

Two militants were killed and two soldiers injured in a 14-hour long encounter that erupted on Saturday evening with an attack on a CRPF patrol on the outskirts of Srinagar.

The security personnel, which went from room to room in the school found two bodies in one room, an officer said.

The encounter ensued soon after a CRPF convoy was ambushed on Saturday in Pantha Chowk by Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) militants. The official said that they have cordoned the area.

The injured were admitted to the army's 92 base hospital in Srinagar.

The fresh attack in Srinagar just adds to intelligence reports of militants attempting a major attack in the capital city but the strict security arrangements on the national highway have prevented it.
