In an embarrassing development, suspected terrorists have reportedly snatched five rifles from policemen in DH Pora in Jammu and Kashmir’s Kulgam district, reported NDTV.

This came less than 24 hours after terrorists had launched brutal attack at BSF and military camps in Baramulla killing one paramilitary jawan.

According to reports, two terrorists had managed to escape in Baramulla.

The terrorist, who gained entry into the 46 RR camp through an adjoining BSF camp, fired indiscriminately and lobbed grenades as well. During the firing, two BSF jawans were injured who were rushed to the nearby hospital, officials said, adding one of the personnel succumbed to injuries at the operation table.

The spokesman for Srinagar-based XV corps Col Rajesh Kalia said terrorists fired at an army camp at Jabanzpora in Baramulla.

The skies in Baramulla, 54 kms from Srinagar, saw illuminators being fired by the army to locate the terrorists who had sneaked into the 46 battalion of Rashtriya Rifles.
