A jawan of paramilitary force SSB was killed and 8 others, including a policeman, were injured on Friday night when militants attacked security convoy in Zakura area on the outskirts of Srinagar. Out of the eight personnel injured, 4 of them are critical. The injured, who included a policeman, have been admitted to a hospital for treatment.

According to IG SSB Deepak Kumar, three companies of SSB patrol party were returning to camp from duty when at around 7:30 pm terrorists opened fire on one of the vehicle. “Four SSB jawans have been injured in the attack, while they were returning from duty.”

“Jawans retaliated but couldn’t fire aggressively given the civilian population. 1 jawan lost his life, while 8 others are injured. Around 40-50 rounds were fired on our convoy,” added Kumar.

Security forces immediately cordoned off the area and launched search operations to track down the militants.

This is the first militant attack in the city since the encounter at Nowhatta on August 15 in which a CRPF commandant was killed and nine other personnel were injured.

          As soon as our PakLove brigade shows its head and tongues the terrorists get emboldened. If this continues and more jawan dies then our surgical strike will be reduced to a myth. Pak is successsful in dealing with India through surgical thousand bleed policy. India should hit harder and show the world the real outcome.

                        Singing in chorus, Maybe we should just dissolve stan and reunite with india as it was before. Anyways Jinnah is dead and purpose of making stan is not fulfilled till date. So no pak, no issues. Lets join hands and appeal pak poloticians to join india.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Aside, Swat and balooch belongs to its natives, pak shall set an example by liberating them.

                              China seems to be afraid to lose the status as owrld's fastest economy. Thier insecurity is showing. We should defeat them economically. Put road blocks in their repeated efforts to surround us. China is an unapologetic thief of international technology and ideas. The world knows it and is upset to see a BIG BULLY coming up. India should be bigger economically and become a true leader which is kind and helpful( opposite of China the bully). The world is always willing to accept and promote a good leader. India, Indian leaders and CITIZENS should realise that the world is looking upto them to take the mantle of leadership in the new times.

                                            Terrorists are still there in Kashmir? Strange. I thought the chaddi shouting and chest thumping brigade had finished them all. What is Parikkar doing? Swinging in a hammock in goa and sipping pavitra gaumutra?
