In an unfortunate event, one policeman was killed in heavy firing at the Anantnag bus stand in Jammu and Kashmir on Saturday evening, reported ANI. Meanwhile, two other policemen were reported injured. The incident took place when terrorists attacked a police party at a bus-stand in Jammu and Kashmir’s Anantnag. As per CNN-News 18, heavy firing is still going on in Anantnag. The attack reportedly took place just 500 metres away from the venue of Home Minister Rajnath Singh’s meeting which is scheduled for tomorrow.

This was the third terrorist activity of the day in Jammu and Kashmir. Earlier in the day, a 22-year-old civilian was injured in a ceasefire violation by the Pakistani Army along the Line of Control in Poonch district of Jammu and Kashmir, the police said. The incident took place when Pakistani troops opened fire from across the border in Debraj, Krishna Ghati and Ishapur in Mendhar sector starting at around 10.30 am, prompting retaliation by Indian troops guarding the border, a police official was quoted saying by PTI.

The civilian, Mohammad Younis, was injured when a shell exploded in his village in Balnoi sector this morning. A buffalo has also killed and a house damaged in the shelling, the official said. Today’s firing comes barely two days after Pakistani troop targeted a forward post along the LoC in Poonch, injuring two Army porters.

Another unprovoked ceasefire violation took place in the Poonch sector of Jammu and Kashmir. The firing was done along the Line of Control (LoC) using small arms, automatics, and mortars.
