Earlier today, two policemen and an Army jawan were injured after terrorists opened fire on them in the Poonch district of Jammu and Kashmir.
Meanwhile, amid a spate of targeted killings by terrorists, a senior army officer on Wednesday said the time has come for some sections in Kashmir to overcome "selective dementia" and condemn the killing of civilians so that future generations are saved and there is an end to people's sufferings.
Lt Gen KJS Dhillon, Director General of Defence Intelligence Agency and Deputy Chief of Integrated Defence Staff, said the perpetrators of such attacks on innocent civilians are targeting the roots of the society and that such people can never be friends of Kashmir.
"Over the past three decades, the Kashmiri society suffered and the very base and root of Kashmir suffered. We have the right to (have own) feelings but whenever there is a killing by terrorists, selective dementia happens," Dhillon had said.
