Srinagar: Five people, including two policemen, were injured on Friday when militants opened fire on a security forces’ party carrying out random vehicle checking in Kak Sarai area of the city, police said.

Security forces had established special check points in many parts of the city, a day after senior journalist Shujaat Bukhari and his two personal security guards were killed in a militant attack.

“During the checking of vehicles at Kak Sarai, militants opened fire on the cops, who also retaliated,” a police official said.

He said two cops and three civilians were injured in the exchange of fire.

Security forces have cordoned off the area and launched a manhunt for the assailants.
