Meanwhile, the area has been cordoned off and a case has been registered in the matter.
The incident comes after terrorists last week carried out a deadly attack on a bus carrying Jammu and Kashmir Armed Police personnel on the outskirts of Srinagar on the 20th anniversary of the Parliament Attack.
The Kashmir Tigers, a little-known outfit that is believed to be a front of the Jaish-e-Mohammad terrorist group, had claimed responsibility for the December 13 firing on the police bus.
Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Kashmir, Vijay Kumar had stated that the attack was pre-planned as the armed police team usually returned to its camp around the same time after performing routine duties.
“The bus carrying 25 policemen was returning to the camp as routine when three terrorists of Jaish-e-Mohammad opened indiscriminate firing on the vehicle,” the IGP had told the media, as reported by news agency PTI.
The death toll in the terrorist attack on the police bus had risen to three as a constable identified as Rameez Ahmad succumbed to his injuries. Assistant Sub Inspector Ghulam Hassan and Constable Shafeeq Ali had died earlier. On the other hand, 11 others had suffered injuries.
Meanwhile, more details about the attack on police personnel in Pulwama are awaited.
