Srinagar/UNI: Militants attacked a security force party in south Kashmir district of Shopian on Wednesday, official sources said.

They said militants hurled a grenade and fire few rounds towards a joint security force party of police and CRPF at Bonbazar in Shopian on Wednesday morning.

“The security forces also retaliated with few gunshots,” they said, adding no one was injured in the attack.

They said militants managed to escape during the chaos created due to the blast and gunshots. “Additional security forces have been rushed to the area and a search operation has been launched to nab the attackers,” they added.
