Prime News, National (Srinagar), Dec 14:- The death toll in Jammu and Kashmir’s terrorist attack has risen to three after another policeman succumbed to his injuries. At least 14 personnel of the ninth battalion of the Jammu and Kashmir Armed Police sustained injuries as terrorists carried out a deadly attack on a bus carrying the personnel on the outskirts of Srinagar on Monday — the 20th anniversary of the Parliament Attack.

The bus came under fire from terrorists in Zewan in the Pantha Chowk area in the evening, police officials said. The injured were evacuated to various hospitals where three of them have died.

Terror outfit named ‘Kashmir Tigers’ on Monday claimed responsibility for the brutal attack on a bus with armed police forces. “Freedom fighters of Kashmir Tigers ambushed the buses carrying Indian reserve police stooges in Zehwan area of Central Kashmir Srinagar. In this lightning strike, 15 IRP stooges neutralized while more than a dozen stooges were critically injured”. The outfit claimed that the attack was a tribute to “all the martyrs of the Kashmir resistance”. (MR, Inputs: Agencies).
