  • Traffic restored on Kashmir highway

Several policemen have been killed or attacked and their homes ransacked by suspected militants in recent months, seen as warnings to local police personnel to stop participating in counter-insurgency operations. The ammunition including UBGL grenades and some currency notes were recovered from it.

Soon after the incident, security forces have cordoned off the area. Basically, the party had gone for an operation and there was a shootout.

The officer identified the slain militant as Mugees Ahmad Mir, son of Abdul Aziz Mir, who hails from Parimpora and was active since many years, had sustained bullet injuries during the shootout at Zakura but had managed to escape. "A militant was also captured during the operation", the police official said.

"He is being questioned", the IGP said.


The officer said that Mugees was presently affiliated with Ansar Ghazwat-ul-Hind led by Zakir Musa.

Meanwhile, Tehreek-ul-Mujahideen spokesman claimed that militants of the outfit attacked the joint party of SOG and CRPF at Zakura in which a police officer was killed and many others injured. "To link it with Al-Qaeda, Daesh or Taliban is a ploy to turn Kashmir into Afghanistan", the spokesman said.

"There will also be partial restrictions in Maisuma and Kralkhud police stations of Srinagar", Shah said.

Chief minister Mehbooba Mufti regretted the death of the officer and said violence was no means to achieve any goal. The Chief Minister has conveyed her sympathies with the bereaved family of slain cop.
