CRPF officer injured in Kulgam militant attack

A CRPF officer was injured in a militant attack on Monday in south Kashmir’s Kulgam district.

A police official said that militants fired a volley of bullets towards 18-Battalion CRPF camp at Nehama village late evening.

“The paramilitary forces returned the fire, but the militants escaped,” he said.

The police official said an Assistant sub-Inspector (ASI), S. Sukumar of 18-Battalion, received bullet injury in his foot and was rushed to hospital. Soon after the attack, police, army and CRPF cordoned off the area and launched searches to nab the attackers.
