Manoj Sinha, the Lieutenant Governor of Jammu and Kashmir (J-K), paid tributes to two policemen killed in a militant attack in Srinagar’s Baghat area on Friday.

“Such cowardly attacks are being carried out to vitiate the peaceful atmosphere and assured that the perpetrators will be brought to justice,” Sinha said.

Earlier, two policemen were killed after a militant opened fire on them at a shop near a police station in the area. The police has identified the attackers as Lashkar-e-Taiba militants, including a local named Saqib.

A Jammu and Kashmir Police constable, Mohammad Altaf, was also killed in a gunfight that broke out in the midnight in Budgam’s Beerwah village. On Altaf’s killing, Sinha said: “Heartfelt tributes to the J-K Police braveheart Mohammad Altaf who attained martyrdom while fighting with the terrorists at Budgam. I salute the martyr who made supreme sacrifice for the honour of the country.”

The militants had fled from the gunfight site in Budgam as the police dogged their blood trail, launching another cordon and search operation in a village.
