Death toll Rises to 3 by Terrorist Attack on a police bus in Srinagar. 

The number of deaths in the attack on a police vehicle in Srinagar was three on Tuesday. At the same time, an injured officer died of injuries. 

Constable Rameez Ahmed, a resident of Ganderbal, passed away on Tuesday in the hospital of the Army’s 92 Base in Srinagar, police stated.

The incident occurred on Monday. 

Ghulam Hassan (Assistant Sub Inspector) and constable Shafeeq Ali were wounded, including 14 killed when militants attacked a police vehicle in a heavily fortified area of Srinagar. Police claimed an offshoot from the JAMD perpetrated the attack.

Police have said that militants fired randomly at a police van belonging to the 9th Battalion of J-K Police’s Armed Wing in Zewan in the outskirts of Srinagar city.

In a press release, police declared: “Preliminary investigation has revealed that three terrorists shot at random on an officer’s vehicle that was carrying police officers near Zewan. Police were returning to their school after completing their work. However, the fire was not in response using the darkness, and the terrorists were able to flee the scene.”

Police reported that one of the militants was wounded in the retaliatory firing. “Credible sources confirmed that this incident was perpetrated through Kashmir Tigers, an offshoot of JeM,” police said.

The attack was the largest against police forces within the Valley following the denial from J&K’s status as a special state in August 2019 and following the Lethpora (Pulwama) vehicle bomb attack. It killed forty CRPF employees in February of that year.
