Rebels attack police, free Lashkar militant in Kashmir, 2 policemen dead

In an audacious attack, militants helped a Lashkar-e-Toiba rebel escape by firing at the police escorting him to hospital here on Tuesday, leaving two policeman dead.

Mohammed Naveed Jhutt, the 22-year-old LeT militant from Pakistan who was caught in Kulgam in south Kashmir in 2014, managed to escape with the assailants, police said.

Within seconds after the sensational escape, the police and other security agencies have cordoned off the hospital and right now searches are going on. "At this moment it is hard to say anything, but the way the attack was planned indicates that militants had the full information about the strength of the police party who brought Naveed to the court", he added.

One weapon of a policeman was also missing.

"The militants attacked the policemen inside the hospital, killed one accompanying the Pakistani prisoner, and fled on a motorcycle", deputy inspector general of police Ghulam Hassan Bhat told AFP. The injured policeman is undergoing treatment in the hospital.

A senior police officer said the militants were waiting outside the hospital to carry out the attack.

Earlier it was reported that terrorists fired shots at the Shri Maharaja Hari Singh hospital in Srinagar.

Police report that Naved still has the weapon he took from the police.
