3 CRPF jawans were martyred and several others were injured when a patrol team of the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) came under terrorist attack in Anantnag in Jammu and Kashmir.

According to reports, the CRPF patrol team was attacked by terrorists on the busy KP road in Anantnag using automatic rifles. After that, grenades were also hurled at the CRPF team. Three CRPF personnel were killed in the attack, while three others were injured, which included an inspector of the Jammu and Kashmir police.

The security forces immediately returned fire reacting to the attack, and one terrorist and one unidentified person were killed in the gunfight. Station House Officer of Anantnag Police Station Arshad Ahmed was injured in the attack, and he has been shifted to Srinagar for treatment. His condition is said to be critical.

The injured CRPF soldiers are being treated a government hospital in Anantnag.

The incident took place near the general bus stand at KP chowk when terrorists in a vehicle opened fire at the security forces, CRPF sources said. According to reports, terrorist organisation Al-Umar Mujahideen (AUM) has claimed responsibility for the attack. AUM is a frontal organisation of Jaish-e-Mohammad, and it was founded by Mustaq Zargar who was released by the Indian government after the IC814 hijack. Al-Umar Mujahideen has also threatened to carry out more terror attacks in the near future.

The entire area has been cordoned-off and additional security forces have been sent to the area. The search operation to nab the other terrorists have been started.

This attack has happened months after 40 CRPF soldiers were killed in a suicide attack on a CRPF convoy at Pulwama in Jammu and Kashmir.
