Kashmiri Freedom Fighters in India-held Kashmir killed one officer and wounded three paramilitary troops in an attack on a police facility early on Saturday, police said. Indian forces returned the attack.
The fighters detonated grenades and fired automatic assault rifles to gain entry to the district police headquarters in southern Pulwama district, which also houses families of some officers, director general of police S.P Vaid said.
One police officer was killed in the initial assault and three paramilitary troops were injured who were evacuated to a nearby hospital, he said.
“Two more CRPF (Central Reserve Police Force) soldiers died” in pursuit of the attackers, Vaid told AFP.
