Militants attack army convoy in Kashmir

In occupied Kashmir, two Indian soldiers were injured in an attack on an army convoy in Srinagar, today. However the officials are yet to confirm the details about the attack.

Militants opened fire on an army bus that was a part of the convoy around 1:15 pm on Saturday.

According to a defence official, the terrorists fired at the last vehicle of an Army convoy near the Jhelum Valley College of Medical Science on the Srinagar-Muzaffarabad highway, injuring two soldiers.

Police sources said a militant was spotted in the area and an operation is on to nab him.

Police are working to restore stability to the area.

The gunfire has created panic among the public in the Lal Chowk area.

Earlier in the day, gunshots were heard in Srinagar's busy commercial centre of Lal Chowk and adjoining areas, triggering panic.

Most of the business establishments downed their shutters while pedestrians ran towards safer places as people had apprehensions about a militant attack in the area.

"This person entered a hotel and asked people to leave saying the militants had entered the building".
