India: Policeman Killed, 20 Troopers Injured

A police constable was killed and 20 other security personnel were injured in a grenade attack in Srinagar on Sunday evening, a police official said. Terrorists hurled the grenade on a police party next to Ganjbaksh Park in Nowhatta area at around 7.00 pm when they were withdrawing from there after day long law and order duty, he added.

“A police constable identified as Shamim Ahmed was killed in the grenade explosion. Eleven other security personnel including eight policemen and three Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) troopers were injured,” said the police officer in Srinagar. “The injured security personnel have been shifted to hospital for treatment. The area has been cordoned off for searches,” the officer said.

According to a source, some miscreants had engaged the cops by pelting stones on them in the same area. The attack came on the day Prime Minister Narendra Modi visited the state to inaugurate the Nashri-Chenani tunnel on the Jammu-Srinagar highway. Separatists had called for a shutdown to protest Modi’s visit.
