A civilian was injured when some terrorists opened fire in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama on Sunday late night.

Victim Nisar Ahmad was immediately shifted to a nearby hospital for treatment.

Attacks by terrorists are on a rise in the valley.

The incident comes after three Indian Army personnel lost their lives after terrorists attacked an Army camp in Pangzam area of Kupwara district on Thursday. At least two attackers were killed in the retaliatory firing by military forces in the region.

Earlier on Friday, two militants opened fire after entering Jammu and Kashmir Bank in Mehandi Kadal in Anantnag.

A Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) head constable sustained bullet injury in his right hand while the other militant, who was carrying a weapon, escaped.

Police said the security personnel deployed there tried to apprehend the militants, but they opened fire.

One of the terrorists was apprehended while the other is absconding.

An investigation is currently on in this regard.
