SRINAGAR - Three policemen were injured Tuesday evening when separatist guerrillas ambushed a police patrol in Kashmir’s Pampore town, a police official said.
A senior police officer said guerrillas fired indiscriminately at the police patrol in Kadalbal area of the town, 15 km from Srinagar, famous for growing the world’s best saffron.
“Two policemen and a special police officer (SPO) were wounded in the attack,” the officer told IANS.
“The condition of constable Farooq Ahmad who received a bullet in his head is critical. The injured policemen are undergoing treatment in the medical institute here.”
“The area was searched,” he added.
Last week, guerrillas attacked a squad of the paramilitary Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) in the apple-rich Sopore town in north Kashmir. Four CRPF troopers and a civilian were injured.
