At least two security personnel were martyred in a terror attack in a busy Srinagar market on Thursday. Three terrorists travelling in a Maruti car opened indiscriminate fire at a Quick Reaction Team of the Indian Army in general area Aban Shah Chowk, HMT, Khushipora, this afternoon, the Army said.
Two soldiers were critically injured and evacuated to the nearest medical facility. However, they succumbed to their injuries, it said.
Being a crowded area, troops exercised restraint to avoid any civilian casualities and collateral damage, officials said.
"Car is being chased by security forces. Initial investigations have revealed JeM and LeT is behind the attack," IGP Kashmir Vijay Kumar said.
Meanwhile, a massive manhunt has been launched and area cordoned off.
