Srinagar: A group of unidentified terrorists on Tuesday opened indiscriminate fire and attacked an Army patrol party with a petrol bomb in the Pulwama district of Jammu and Kashmir.

According to ANI, the cordon and search operation (CASO) party of 44 Rashtriya Rifles was attacked with a petrol bomb followed by indiscriminate firing by a group of terrorists between the area of Gad-Bough and Armullah in south Kashmir's Pulwama district.
