A jawan of paramilitary force SSB was killed and 8 others, including a policeman, were injured tonight when militants attacked security convoy in Zakura area on the outskirts of Srinagar.

Militants fired at the vehicles of Sashastra Seema Bal (SSB) which were ferrying the personnel to their camp after performing law and order duties in the city, a security force official said.

One jawan of the SSB was killed and 8 others were injured in the attack, the official said.

The injured, who included a policeman, have been admitted to a hospital for treatment.

Security forces immediately cordoned off the area and launched search operations to track down the militants.

This is the first militant attack in the city since the encounter at Nowhatta on August 15 in which a CRPF commandant was killed and nine other personnel were injured.
