SRINAGAR - A constable was killed in a suspected militant attack on a police post in occupied Kashmir on Friday.
The militants allegedly opened fire at a security installation at Wardwan in Budgam district, where a few families of the minority community live. “A policeman succumbed to injuries sustained in the attack,” said an official at the Budgam police control room.
Sources said snatching weapons seemed to be the motive behind the attack.
The slain policeman was identified as Shameem Ahmad, a constable. Police spokesperson said, adding that the area was cordoned immediately after the incident.
Last month, suspected militants took four rifles from policemen deputed at a checkpost in Hyderpora.
