Srinagar: Thirteen jawans were injured when terrorists carried out a series of attacks on security forces in Jammu and Kashmir.

The six attacks came in a span of four hours on Tuesday. The terrorists also looted four service rifles.

DGP SP Vaid said there was intelligence input about terror attacks on the 17th day of Ramzan on Tuesday and the anniversary of Battle of Badr, the first battle of Islam which took place in March 624 AD, and all necessary precautions were taken, reported PTI.

A grenade was hurled at a CRPF camp at Ladiyar in Tral area of Pulwama district. Ten paramilitary jawans were injured in the attack, a police official said. "Two jawans were seriously injured, but they are out of danger," Vaid said.

In the second attack, the militants opened fire on the security personnel guarding the residence of a retired high court judge at Anchidora in Anantnag district, resulting in injuries to two cops, he said.

The police chief said the terrorists snatched four self-loading rifles from the policemen posted there.

The third attack took place on a CRPF camp at Padgampora in Pulwama, but no one was hurt in it as the grenade hurled by the militants exploded mid-air.

The terrorists also hurled a grenade at Pulwama police station, resulting in minor injuries to a policeman. Another attack took place near Bomai in North Kashmir's Sopore, but no damage was caused.
