Three personnel of the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) were killed and three others injured in a terror attack in Jammu and Kashmir today.
The terrorists attacked a joint party of the CRPF and police personnel at a check post in Sopore town in north Kashmir's Baramulla district. The personnel were in an armoured vehicle.
"A terrorist fired from close quarters killing three jawans and injured two others including the driver of armoured vehicle," a police officer said.
A search operation to track down the terrorists has been launched.
Officials say the injured personnel have been shifted to the Army's 92 base hospital in Srinagar.
This is the third attack against the paramilitary in the Kashmir valley within a week, news agency PTI reported, adding a CRPF soldier was injured on Friday after terrorists fired at a similar check post in Pulwama.
