Lashker-e-Taiba militants on Sunday attacked an Army convoy on the Srinagar-Jammu national highway killing a jawan and wounding six while one of the ultras was killed in the return fire.

Heavily-armed militants hurled grenades and fired indiscriminately at the convoy, on way to Jammu, near Drangbal-Pampore, some 14 kms from Srinagar, at around 9.15 am, a Defence spokesman said.

A jawan was killed and six were wounded in the attack, he said adding the armymen returned the fire in which an ultra was killed.

The injured were admitted to an Army Hospital nearby, the spokesman said.

A caller identifying himself as a spokesman of the Pak-backed LeT telephoned a local news agency claiming responsibility for the attack.

The attack came a day after a joint meeting of police and security forces in Srinagar on Saturday evening on combating subversive elements.
