This is the third attack in the Union Territory in the past three days. On Monday, at least three CRPF personnel and one civilian were killed while seven others were injured in a terrorist attack in Wangam in Jammu and Kashmir’s Handwara, CRPF officials said.

At least one terrorist was reportedly neutralised after a CRPF patrol party was attacked near Qaziabad area.
