Three Border Security Force (BSF) troopers were injured in Srinagar Thursday when separatist guerrillas fired at their vehicle.


"Three BSF troopers were injured in the firing incident. All the injured have been shifted to the army's base hospital in Badami Bagh cantonment area in Srinagar. Doctors have described the condition of one of the injured troopers as critical," the official said.

The vehicle was coming from north Kashmir's Baramulla town to Panthachowk camp of the BSF when it was fired upon near Gulshan Nagar on the bypass road, a police official said.

This is the second militant attack in a month in the state's summer capital.

On March 13, a suicide squad attacked Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) troopers in Bemina area of the city.

Five CRPF troopers and two attacking fidayeen were killed in the incident, while nine others, including three civilians, were killed.

The March 13 attack was the first in Srinagar in three years.
