TWO civilians, a policeman and a militant were killed after militants attacked a police party at Anantnag’s Mirbazar locality Saturday night. Three civilians were injured in the shootout. An operation has been launched to track the militants.

Around 9.30 pm, when a police team from Mirbazar police station was clearing the national highway after traffic was held up by an accident, they came under fire from militants, senior police officers said. A shootout followed, in the course of which the deaths and injuries occurred.

A senior police officer said while one militant was killed, another was injured. “We are following the injured militant,” he said.

This is the second attack on the police in Kulgam district this week. On Monday, five policemen and two J&K Bank guards were killed after militants attacked a cash van in the same district.

On Friday, J&K Bank stopped cash transactions at 40 branches, most of them in the south Kashmir districts of Pulwama and Shopian.

    Feku said farzical strikes will end terrorism. Feku said demonetisation will end terrorism. Feku said saving cow will end all problems , including cowardice of gujju like him and Vomit Fatsoji and send all coward deshbhakts to Kashmir to fight. Feku said drinking gaumutra will give courage to gadha sons of gaumata and that will solve Kashmir problem. Feku's Kashmir policy is so good, even Yankees are adopting it by kil NRIs. All miracle of Ram Tulla the north Indian who killed his wife.

      What's happening with our security forces.???Are they demoralised ????? Have politicians decisions hampered their role ????? The police should recruit and scatter more and more informants in the civilian areas. Why is the govt's not arresting the main trouble creators, the Seperatists. Don't they realise that with their arrest and confinement for a year, the situation can return to normal in a few days . This is also the result of not allowing the security forces to use the pellet guns freely. Remove the present officials who are managing the situation, as they have failed in their duty.

        It looks there is not end to terrorism. Our army can't stop it. Political solutions are not working out because of diluted values of Indian politics. Different political parties and leaders are of different opinions. Time is running away. It is better to form a group of personalities who are highly ethical, sacred, patriotic and of statesmen kind, to find the righteous, workable solution. Such group may need cons utional powers and the government should follow their directions under the leadership of our PM. It is the time to try with highest ethical solution.

          occupation of others land is not ethical but hindrance to truth hinduism terrorism, deserving of no better response but in the same coin, hinduism terrorism, to teach hindu terrorist hyenas of hinduism racism by faith, a lesson in their own hindu criminal language of hinduism terrorism, because, there is no good hindu racist hog of hinduism racism by faith but, a dead hog of hinduism racism on a payer of fire, to be a lesson for the rest of the hindus criminals by faith.
