Assault on cops

Talking to Greater Kashmir, the Superintendent of Police (SP), Mubashir Lateefi said, “We have formed a Special Investigating Team trace the assailants.”
The team, he said, would be headed by Additional Superintendent of Police (ASP), Kulgam, Muhammad Shafi Mir.
The team was formed after the driver of the cab, in which the assailants fled away, produced himself before the police yesterday.
“Although the driver Imtiyaz Ahmad Malik ,34, a resident of Yaripora, claimed innocence, his questioning was on and some vital information has been gathered about the assailants believed to be militants,” police sources said.
Although there have been incidents in the past where the militants have snatched the weapons of the police men. But it is for the first time that the militants attacked policemen with sharp-edged weapons and fled along with service rifles of the injured personnel.
No militant outfit has so far claimed responsibility for the attack.
