Gun battle at Srinagar school ends, Two terrorist killed

The gunbattle at the school followed after militants attacked CRPF (Central Reserved Police Force) personnel Saturday evening, who were deployed in their road opening duty in close proximity to the school in Pantha chowk on the Srinagar-Jammu highway.

"The exchange of firing between security forces and militants began at around 3.40 am and is going on intermittently, " the police said. One sub inspector was martyred in the attack while two jawans were injured. The site of the attack happens to be a high-security zone located less than a kilometre away from the headquarters of Indian Army's Chinar Corps. The area was immediately cordoned off by the security forces and search operations were launched in the school premises.

Mobile internet services were suspended in the Valley to prevent the spread of rumours. The speed of landline broadband connections has also been brought down.
