Srinagar, Oct 6: Terrorists opened fire in Pulwama’s Tral on Friday, leaving one civilian injured. While more details are awaited, the attack comes days after terrorists attacked a Border Security Force (BSF) camp in Srinagar in Jammu and Kashmir.

BSF Assistant Sub Inspector BK Yadav was martyred in the attack and the tree terrorists were gunned down by security forces after the attack in Srinagar on Tuesday, October 3. Jammu and Kashmir Police had said after the attack that 6 to 7 terrorists who had infiltrated from Pakistan were on the prowl and the police were on a lookout for them. “We are looking for 6-7 terrorists and we need to neutralise them very fast,” J&K IGP Muneer Khan had said.

Terrorists had earlier last month, too, targeted Tral.
