  • Srinagar hospital firing: Two cops injured in firing, Pakistani terrorist escapes

In the course of firing, the Pakistani terrorist managed to escape and terrorists also fled from the point.

There are reports that Naveed has decamped with the rifle of one of the injured policemen.

Further details are awaited. "At this moment it is hard to say anything, but the way the attack was planned indicates that militants had the full information about the strength of the police party who brought Naveed to the court", he added. Two policemen have died, police said. He had a scuffle with escorting police party and suddenly two persons appeared and opened fire.

Head constable Mushtaq Ahmad was killed while another policeman later succumbed to his injuries in Srinagar's main hospital. Security forces are now on high alert across Srinagar.




Two Lashkar militants rained bullets at the police party and fled in a auto towards downtown Srinagar.

The militant had undergone intensive training and was good in handling equipment like compasses, GPS, wireless sets and mobile phones installed with Skype software, an official said.

The officials said that Naveed belonged to LeT's Wasim group and was involved in a number of terror acts including the killing of a police official and a schoolteacher before his arrest.

A Pakistani terrorist in police custody escaped this morning as he was brought to a Srinagar hospital for a routine medical check-up. "We are investigating the matter and will find out whether militants helped the escape of the prisoner or he did it himself".
