New Delhi: Three Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) troopers were injured on Friday evening in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama district when terrorists attacked their camp, police said.

The attack came as even Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh is in the state to review security.
“Militants hurled grenades and then resorted to firing at the CRPF camp in Litter village of Pulwama district in the evening,” a senior police officer told IANS here.
“Guards at the camp retaliated to the militant firing after which the militants escaped under the cover of darkness.
“Three CRPF jawans have sustained splinter injuries in this attack. They are being shifted to hospital for treatment,” said the officer, adding that the area around the camp has been cordoned off for searches.
This is the third attack in one day in Jammu and Kashmir.

Earlier, suspected militants fired on a police party at Pakharpora in Jammu and Kashmir’s Budgam district, injuring a police sub-inspector. The J&K police and a large contingent of forces were rushed to the spot to nab the suspected gunman.

“The police are making consistent efforts to nab the gunman and it will be made sure that there is no collateral damage,” an official said.

The area has been cordoned off and search operation is underway.

In another incident, terrorists hurled a grenade at a police post in Anantnag district. However, no damage was reported.
