Reports say that the attack may have been a result of security forces killing LeT commander Junaid Matoo and two other terrorists earlier in the day in Arwani village in south Kashmir’s Kilgam district.
Besides Ahmed, other deceased cops include constables Sharik Ahmad and Tanveer Ahmad from Budgam, Sheraz Ahmad from Achabal, and Asif Ahmad and Sabzar Ahmed from Anantnag.
