J&K: 6 cops killed in ambush by terrorists

Six policemen, including a Sub-Inspector, were martyred after terrorists ambushed a police party in Achabal town in Jammu and Kashmir's Anantnag district on Friday.

A policeman and a civilian were killed in two separate shootouts in Srinagar on Thursday evening while terrorist shot at and injured a woman in Katrasu village of south Kashmir's Anantnag district. A 22-year-old civilian was also killed when forces opened fire on protesters while the encounter was underway.

Earlier Friday, government forces cordoned off Arwani village in the south on a tip that at least two Kashmiri rebels were hiding there, said inspector-general of police Muneer Ahmed Khan. Search and combing operations are still going on in the village. As per reports, the attack took place near Bijbehara area on Sunday, when the vehicle was passing through.

The security forces were complimenting each other on the death of the LeT commander, but within hours, a group of 10-15 heavily armed LeT militants ambushed a vehicle carrying six policemen, including station house officer (SHO) of Achabal police station in Anantnag district.

Twenty of the injured persons are being treated at different nearby hospitals while some of them with severe injuries have been referred to Srinagar hospitals.

All shops, business establishments, petrol pumps and educational institutions in Srinagar and other parts of the Valley remained closed while public transport was off the roads in response to the shutdown called by separatist leaders against killing of civilians by security personnel.

The security forces were also fired upon from the crowd that was indulging in stone pelting, police said, adding that the Lashkar-e-Taiba militants were desperate to save Mattoo.

Addressing mourners at Kulgam and Pampore through telephone, Geelani paid tributes to the militants and civilians killed during Arwani gunfight, a statement issued by Hurriyat Conference said.

"The loss of six policemen in Jammu and Kashmir is definitely a cause for concern".

Authorities have blocked 3G/4G mobile internet services across the Kashmir valley.

Fighting erupted when the militants began firing in an attempt to break through the siege, Khan said. The clashes turned ugly after forces fired pellets and bullets killing two youth and injuring dozens badly.
