A day after Islamic terrorists opened fire at an owner of Krishna Dhaba in Dalgate area of Srinagar, the area around another food joint named Shiv Shakti Sweet shop in Srinagar’s Barzulla has been targetted by terrorists. Two police officers who were standing at the sweet shop when the attack took place, received bullet injuries and were rushed to the hospital in critical condition, where they succumbed to their injuries.
According to a report by India TV, the Resistance Front (TRF), a shadow outfit of Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) has claimed the responsibility for the attack.
The two policemen have been shifted to Bone and Joint Hospital for treatment, where they have reportedly succumbed. Among the two, one slain policeman has been identified as constable Sohail.
“Terrorists attacked a police party in Barzulla area of district Srinagar. In this terror incident, two policemen got injured. They have been shifted to a hospital for treatment. Area cordoned off. Further details shall follow,” Kashmir Zone Police said.
Meanwhile, police have cordoned off the entire area and have launched a search operation to nab the attackers.
More details are awaited in connection to the incident.
We reported yesterday how terrorists shot 22-year-old youth Aakash Mehra, son of Ramesh Kumar Mehra who owns a popular food joint Krishna Dhaba, located in a high-security area of the city. He was shot at by terrorists from a close range and critically wounded on Wednesday evening.
The banned terror outfit Muslim Janbaz Force has claimed responsibility for the attack, the Kashmir police said. After some eyewitnesses claimed that the terrorists ran away after opening fire at Aakash Mehra, the police are looking at the CCTV footage.
As per the statement issued by the terror group, they attacked the Hindu youth because he is an ‘outsider’ who intends to get domicile status in Kashmir.
