The IED was set off when an Army officer, along with his men, was patrolling the area, they said. The blast killed the officer and injured a soldier who was evacuated to hospital, the officials said.
The IED blast came two days after 40 CRPF personnel were killed when a Jaish-e-Mohammad terrorist rammed an explosive-laden SUV into a bus carrying them in Pulwama district in south Kashmir.
