Ananthnag, Dec 7: Six personnel of the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) were injured after terrorists opened fire on their convoy on the Jammu-Srinagar national highway in Ananthnag district. The six personnel have been rushed to hospital for treatment.
The incident took place near the Green Tunnel in Bijbehara. The CRPF convoy was taken by surprise when the bus in which they were travelling was attacked by terrorists. All six personnel are said to be out of danger even as a manhunt has been launched to nab the terrorists.
The Indian army only recently launched one of its biggest manhunts to nab four terrorists who had infiltrated into Kashmir. The four had infiltrated a month ago with an intention of targetting army personnel, an intelligence bureau report states.
IB officials have also warned of such attack in future as there appears to be a sense of aggression on part of the Pakistani terrorists.
Moreover officials also say that there has been a general trend of terror strikes each time India and Pakistan meet and discuss peace.
The NSA level meet held at Bangkok on Sunday had come in for sharp criticism by separatists and terrorists. In this backdrop IB officials have warned of more terror strikes and also the need to increase security.
