Policeman Killed, Pakistani Terrorist Escapes

Srinagar hospital attack: Pakistani terrorist snatches gun from police, escapes after killing 2 cops

Two policemen escorting prisoners to a health facility were killed in Srinagar when Lashkar-e-Tayyeba (LeT) terrorists attacked them to take away a handcuffed Pakistani terrorist, believed to be a highly influential in the outfit's ranks.

Terming the attack on policemen in a Srinagar hospital on Tuesday as a "security lapse", Opposition parties in Jammu and Kashmir on Wednesday demanded a statement from the government over the escape of a Pakistani militant in the attack.

"Naveed was arrested in south Kashmir's Kulgam in June 2014". He told that someone close to Naveed opened fire at two constable while the terrorist was being escorted. Jat's escape, police sources said, will motivate the LeT, which has faced a rout after its commander Abu Ismail was killed in an encounter a year ago. Also, as per the reports the police tried to get them all for the medical check-up at SMHS Hospital and from they escaped after snatching the handgun of a police officer.

Jat and five others had been brought to the hospital for a routine medical checkup by policemen when the militants fired on them. Searches are going in the area and launched a manhunt for the detente and gunmen, the sources said. When he was brought to the hospital, there was an incident of firing in which two cops were injured. Police sources have asserted that their main focus was on capturing the prisoner, while the police also tried to ensure that no patients inside the hospital are disturbed.

He said the Pakistani militant Naveed along with the attacker managed to escape from the spot.

Senior officials said Srinagar had not witnessed such a getaway since 2001 when "dreaded terrorist" General Abdullah managed to give a slip to his police guards and escaped by jumping from the first floor of SMHS hospital. The slain cop has been identified as Head-Constable Mushtaq Ahmed.

Apart from the deceased policeman, two other cops sustained critical injuries in the attack, the SSP said. "My heart goes out to their families and loved ones", Ms. Mehbooba said on Twitter.

Naveed Jat alias Abu Hanzullah alias Munnu alias Chotu son of Mohammad Hanief Jat resident of Sahiwala, Multan Punjab Pakistan.
