Four Sashastra Seema Bal (SSB) jawans were injured on 14 October after some militants attacked their convoy in Zakura area on the outskirts of Srinagar.

According to a PTI report, the militants fired at the vehicles of SSB which were ferrying the personnel to their camp. A security official said that four SSB personnel sustained injuries in the attack and they have been admitted to a local hospital.

Security forces immediately cordoned off the area and launched search operations to track down the militants.

This is the first militant attack in the city since the encounter at Nowhatta on 15 August in which a CRPF commandant was killed and nine other personnel were injured.
