Kashmir: A day after five policemen and two bank employees were shot dead in Jammu and Kashmir's Kulgam district, armed men looted a bank in the same district. Police said two gunmen made way into the Ellaquai Dehati Bank in Yaripora area and looted around Rs 65,000.

“The bank officials told us that one person with a pistol entered and took away cash to the tune of Rs 60,000-70,000. The accused, along with his accomplice, has taken shelter inside a house,” said IGP, Kahsmir, Syed Javed Mujtaba Gillani.
