Srinagar: A Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) trooper was killed and another injured as separatist guerrillas opened fire at the high-security Regal Chowk area here Saturday morning. Minutes later, the militants killed a policeman, officials said.
The militants fired at the CRPF troopers from point blank range in the busy market place, half a kilometre from city centre Lal Chowk. As soon as the gunfire was heard, shoppers and passersby ran for cover.

Soon after, the terrorists shot dead a policeman in the Batmaloo area of the city.

Officials said a search for the militants is on.
