Udhampur police post attacked

Suspected militants on Thursday night attacked a police post in a remote area of Udhampur district of Jammu and Kashmir, injuring two special police officers (SPOs), a day after a terror strike there saw a Pakistani terrorist being captured by villagers.

According to a senior district official, the militants attacked the post in the mountainous Basantgarh area of the district at 9:15 p.m, leaving the two SPOs injured even as the security personnel deployed there retaliated to the firing.

Police and army personnel have been rushed to the area to deal with the situation.

Meanwhile, Pakistani troops targeted forward posts and civilian areas in Poonch along the LoC on Thursday. They launched the offensive using automatic weapons, rocket projectile grenades and mortar bombs. — PTI
