SRINAGAR – Three Indian soldiers were killed after ‘militants’ opened fire on an army convoy in Pampore in Pulwana district on Srinagar-Jammu National Highway, Indian media claimed on Saturday.

“Terrorists attacked, security forces retaliated. Public was present so the army could not fire openly but terrorists were forced to run away,” said Indian Army’s Inspector General (Operations). 

The officials say a search operation was also underway.
