“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.
