Srinagar: A fresh alert has been sounded in the summer capital, Srinagar, and other parts of Kashmir valley in view of a drone attack on Air Force Station Jammu that left two persons injured on Sunday.
Security has been beefed up around sensitive places, including security force installation and Indian Air Force (IAF) airfields in the valley. This week has so far witnessed four militant attacks that left two policemen, including a CID officer, and as many civilians dead in Srinagar.
Security forces have also been deployed in strength in sensitive places in the city, where checkpoints have been established in some areas. Vehicles, particularly two-wheelers, were being checked at these nakas before allowing them to move forwards.
Security forces were also checking vehicles coming into the city from adjoining districts to foil any attempt by militants to smuggle in weapons.
Two explosions rocked the high-security technical area of Jammu airport at around 0145 hrs on Sunday. In another incident, Jammu Police on Sunday foiled an attack by arresting a militant of The Resistance Front (TRF) with 5-kg Improvised Explosive Device (IED) in the Narwal area in Jammu outskirts.(UNI)
