A police officer and a civilian were killed in two separate attacks by terrorists in Anantnag and Srinagar this evening, police said.

An Assistant Sub Inspector of police was targeted in Bijbehara town of Anantnag. He was critically injured and shifted to hospital where he died.

The officer has been identified as Mohammad Ashraf. Police said area has been cordoned off to track down attackers.

In another attack, a civilian was killed at Safakdal in downtown Srinagar. Police said terrorists fired at Rouf Ahmad. He was injured and shifted to hospital where doctors declared him dead on arrival.

Earlier this month, three personnel of Jammu and Kashmir police died and 11 were injured after two terrorists attacked a police bus near a police camp at Zewan on the outskirts of Srinagar.

The terrorists had opened fire on the bus in the high security area that houses several camps of various security forces.

It was the second major terror attack in the Kashmir Valley after the recent spate of targeted attacks on migrant workers and members of the minority communities.

Earlier, two policemen were killed as terrorists opened fire at a police team in Kashmir's Bandipora district.
