Srinagar: A policeman was critically injured when he was fired at by separatist guerrillas on Sunday in Pulwama district of Kashmir.
“A head constable of police identified as Muhammad Shafi was injured when militants fired at police in Muran Chowk,” a senior police official told IANS here.
“The injured policeman has been shifted to hospital for treatment,” the official said.
The area has been cordoned off and the police was searching for the militants.
Earlier in February this year, three army commandos, including two Captains, and a militant were killed in a fierce gunfight with a group of terrorists who had holed up inside a government building on the outskirts of Srinagar.
A multi-storied building of Entrepreneurship Development Institute (EDI) in Pampore caught fire, as the encounter between army and the heavily-armed terrorists, suspected to be 3-4 in number, continued till the second day.
