Heavily-armed militants indiscriminately fired at a police station in curfew-bound Sopore town of North Kashmir on Monday.

No loss of life was reported in the attack on the police station, 55 kms from Srinagar, police said.

Police retaliated following which the militants fled, they said.

The attack by militants came hours after security forces fired warning shots and lobbed dozens of teargas shells to disperse protestors carrying the body of a youth killed in firing allegedly by CRPF last evening.
