Two policemen were killed after militants attacked a police patrol in south Kashmir’s Anantnag district on Saturday.
They have been identified as ASI Bashir Ahmad and Constable Riyaz Ahmad.
Witnesses said that motorcycle-borne gunmen opened fire on police party at the bus stand which is located just meters away from police post.
This attack follows right after the Hizbul Mujahideen attack yesterday in which 3 BSF men were martyred.
A police spokesperson who did not want to be named told U4UVoice that this can very well be a move by the militants to disrupt the By-polls due on 22 June.
