Srinagar/ New Delhi:
Two CRPF soldiers were killed and three others injured in a terrorist attack on the outskirts of Srinagar this afternoon.
The terrorists opened fire at the security forces when the personnel were on duty on a highway, police said, adding that they seemed to have come from a “marshy area” nearby.
It’s not yet clear if the terrorists have escaped. A search operation is going on, and the area has been cordoned off.
This is the third attack on the security forces in the same area, which is usually heavily guarded, in the last few weeks.
