Militants carried out three separate attacks on security forces in Sopore in north Kashmir on Friday, leaving two policemen injured. The first incident took place at 12.30 am when suspected Lashker-e-Tayiba militants hurled three grenades at a police convoy in the outskirts of Sopore, 54 kms from Srinagar, official sources said.

The grenades where followed by heavy firing which was effectively retaliated by the security personnel, they said, adding that no one was injured. The second incident took place at 1.30 am at the main crossing of the city in Sopore, which left a jawan of Indian Reserve Police injured.

The third incident took place on the Sopore-Baramulla road at approximately 2.30 am, when terrorists fired upon police vehicles, leaving one of the drivers injured, the sources said.
