One person was injured when suspected militants fired at two vehicles belonging to security forces in south Kashmir’s Anantnag early today.

Arif, who works for a construction company in Banihal, was behind the security forces when the firing took place. The gunfire missed the target but hit his car. He was injured too, a police spokesperson said.

“Arif is a resident of Bakshiabad, Anantnag and went to the Public Health Centre in Vesu (Anantnag). Around 5 am, when he was on his way to Banihal, unknown militants fired at two security vehicles which were moving ahead of his car,” he added.

Arif’s condition is stable. He has been referred to the SMHS hospital here for specialised treatment.

“About 20 empty cases of AK ammunition have been recovered from the spot,” the official said.

A case has been registered and investigations have begun already.
