Two heavily armed terrorists opened fire near the mini-secretariat in Allah Pir area of Jammu and Kashmir’s Poonch district. The location is very close to Army’s brigade headquarters.
A J&K policeman was killed when terrorists opened fire on the security forces.
The Poonch terrorists are initially hid inside an old bungalow some 300 meters away from Poonch Brigade.
The martyr, Havildar Raju of the Crime Investigation Department’s special branch with the Poonch Police, tried to enter the bungalow when he was shot.
According to a police source, the terrorists probably sneaked through the security grid along the Line of Control into Poonch town and launched the attack.
Security forces have cordoned both the hideouts. Firing is on between the terrorists and the forces.
