Militant outfit Al-Umar Mujahideen has claimed the responsibility of last night Zakura attack that left a Sashastra Seema Bal (SSB) trooper dead and eight others seriously injured.
Chief Commander of the outfit Mushtaq Zargar told Kashmir based news agency CNS over phone that the militants from his outfit carried out the deadly attack in Zakura on the outskirts of Srinagar.
"Earlier also we carried different attacks on security establishment but never claimed the responsibilities for those attacks. Now we have decided to come out in open. We will continue to target Indian security personnel operating in Kashmir valley," said Zargar.
He warned of intensifying attacks on troopers in the coming days.
