Nine security personnel, including five CRPF jawans, were injured in a militant attack in the Tral area of Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama district today, police said.

He said nine security personnel – five CRPF jawans and four cops - were injured in the attack.

Security forces’ personnel exercised maximum restraint after being attacked to prevent any civilian casualty, the spokesman said.
