Srinagar: A policeman was killed on Sunday during a militant attack on a police station in Jammu and Kashmir's Shopian district, authorities said.
The station came under attack early Sunday morning after the militants hurled a grenade and then fired indiscriminately at the station's guard post before escaping, according to police sources.
"A constable deployed at the guard post was seriously injured. He was shifted to a hospital where he succumbed to his injuries," the sources added.
An infiltration bid aided by the Pakistan Army has been foiled along the Line of Control (LoC) in Tangdhar sector of Jammu and Kashmir's Kupwara district, the Army said Sunday.
The Army responded strongly to the ceasefire violation and the infiltration attempt.
"There was an infiltration attempt by terrorists and ceasefire violation by Pakistan Army in Tangdhar sector in the north Kashmir district late last night," an Army official said Sunday.
"Own forces retaliated strongly and foiled infiltration bid being attempted under covering fire by Pakistan Army," the official said.
He said there was no damage, injury or casualty on this side.
