A Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) constable was martyred in the ongoing firefight in Karan Nagar area of Srinagar on Monday, said an official.
According to the CRPF’s PRO, Rajesh Yadav, one constable has succumbed to his injuries at the site of firefight.
The deceased constable was identified as Mujahid Khan of 49 Bn.
“In the wee hours, a sentry of 23 battalion stationed at Karanagar noticed a suspicious movement. He challenged the suspects. They ran into the nearby building behind National School,” said Yadav.
The two militants reportedly took refuge inside a nearby building and the area has been cordoned off by the CRPF. A jawan who was injured in the firing succumbed to his injuries.
Yadav said that the building where militants have taken shelter is a huge structure.
