Two civilians, two cops killed in militant attack at J&K’s Sopore

The injured were rushed to a nearby hospital from where the injured policeman was taken to the Army’s 92 Base Hospital in Srinagar.

Two policemen and as many civilians were killed and at least three others injured on Saturday when militants opened fire targeting security forces in Sopore town of Baramulla district of Jammu and Kashmir, officials said.

Militants fired upon a joint party of the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) and police near Main Chowk Sopore in north Kashmir district around noon, they said.

The officials said in the firing, two police personnel and two civilians were killed.

At least three others, including a policeman, were injured in the attack, they said.

The injured were rushed to a nearby hospital from where the injured policeman was taken to the Army’s 92 Base Hospital in Srinagar, the officials added.

The security forces have cordoned off the area and further details are awaited, they said.

Sajad Lone, chairman of J&K People’s Conference, called for an end to terrorism.

“Five succumb in Sopore attack. 3 civilians and 2 police men. Mr gunmen— Approximately—5 Kashmiri funerals. 5 widows. 10 grieving old parents. A dozen or more orphans. All Kashmiris. So mr gunmen. Really want to know. Whose bloody side r u on (sic),” he said.

“When will this madness end? Guns came to Kashmir in 1989. 32 years down the line. I can unambiguously state. That gun enslaves the very people that it purports to fight for. The gunmen really need to ponder whose war they r fighting,” he said in another tweet.
