Militants attacked a police patrol party and killed two policemen in Rajouri district of Jammu and Kashmir, a senior police officer said in Jammu on Wednesday.

Acting on a tip off, a team of security officers last night laid a cordon at Tota Morha-Dorimal village in Thanna Mandi, Rajouri SSP Shafkat Wattali said, adding the militants fired a volley of shots killing two police personnel on the spot.

A brief encounter followed which was later suspended due to dark. The operation resumed this morning, he said.

The deceased have been identified as Aijaz Ahmed, a constable hailing from Baramulla and Khan Mohammad, a SPO from Kalakote.
