Two policemen were killed Friday during a gunfight between the security forces and separatist guerrillas in Jammu and Kashmir’s Baramulla district. A militant was also killed in the gun battle which is still on, police said.


The gunfight started after a group of heavily armed guerrillas attacked an army camp in Mohra area near the Uri border town Friday morning.

“Two policemen – a head constable and a constable – and one militant have been killed in this encounter which is going on,” a senior police officer said.

“A group of two to three militants are believed to have entered the camp…,” the officer added.

There are reports of a fire from the camp but fire tenders are unable to go inside because of the ongoing gun battle.
