Three security personnel have been killed in a terror attack at the district police lines in south Kashmir’s Pulwama in the early hours today.
In a pre-dawn attack, at least three heavily-armed attackers stormed the police lines where hundreds of Jammu and Kashmir Police and CRPF personnel are stationed, police said.
After forcing their entry into the police building, terrorists resorted to indiscriminate firing and lobbed grenades. Two Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) jawans and one policeman were killed.
Officials said they are evacuating policemen from the building where terrorists are holed up and also adjacent buildings before they start a flush out operation.
The attackers are holding on in two police buildings.
“We are evacuating people. Both CRPF and Jammu and Kashmir (personnel) are stationed in police lines,” said Munir Ahmad Khan, Inspector General of Police.
