A Central Reserve Police Force jawan was injured early on Monday morning after unidentified persons fired at a CRPF post in Kathua district of Jammu and Kashmir, police said.

“A trooper was injured in a firing incident at a CRPF picket in Malhar (Billawar) area on Monday morning,” a police official told IANS in Jammu.

The injured paramilitary trooper was shifted to a hospital, police said.

“Further details are waited as reinforcements have been rushed to the spot.”

It was not immediately clear if it was a militant attack, although security forces have launched a massive search operation to nab the culprits.
