Six policemen travelling towards Anantnag town in a Tata Sumo vehicle were killed when militants ambushed them at Thajiwara Achabal. The victims were a Sub Inspector in Achabal and five constables.
The militants started firing and all the policemen were killed. The attack took place 17 km from the spot in Arwani where an encounter between militants and security forces was in progress. The militants are also accused of taking away the AK-47s that the policemen were carrying before running away. They also shot all the policemen at close range after killing them, thereby disfiguring the faces.
The Lashkar-e-Toiba acepted responsibility for the attack, and police mentioned that this was a ‘revenge’ attack since an encounter killed the militant’s local commander Junaid Mattoo.
This is cowardly and sad. Is there really no way to get rid of all the militants/terrorists? People killing others, and afterwards shooting them at close range so as to disfigure them is complete maniacal, and proves that there isn’t any humanity left in them.
