Two army men and a cop were killed while three other security personnel were injured on Wednesday in a militant attack in Baramulla district of Kashmir.
Militants ambushed an army convoy at Khwajabagh in Baramulla at 2:30 am on Wednesday, a police official said, killing two soldiers and injuring two others.
“One policeman was also killed while another cop was injured as their vehicle also came under attack by the militants,” the official said.
A massive operation has been launched to track down the attackers, who fled the spot.
The attack comes two days after militants attempted to infiltrate Srinagar’s downtown area of Nowhatta, near a famous Sufi shrine. Two militants and a CRPF officer were killed in the attack.
