Militant trigger IED blast, fire at army vehicle in Shopian
Shopian: Militants on Monday evening triggered an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) blast and followed it by firing at an army vehicle in south Kashmir’s Shopian district.
Official sources said that the IED was planted near Arihal Bridge near Grade. The militants followed it with firing. There were no immediate reports of any loss of life or injuries.
Soon after the attack, the army along with the additional reinforcements cordoned off the area and launched searches to nab the attackers, they added. Repeated attempts to contact police officers for confirmation or otherwise did not fructify.
