Srinagar: Terrorists attacked a police party at a bus-stand in Jammu and Kashmir's Anantnag district on Saturday.

One policeman was killed and two others were injured in the terror attack.

Notably, the attack took place 500 yards from the venue of Home Minister Rajnath Singh's meeting on Sunday.

Rajnath Singh is camping in Kashmir for a four-day visit, during which he will hold talks with civil society members, leaders of political and social outfits, business leaders and others.

The Home Minister accompanied by newly-appointed Union Home Secretary Rajiv Gauba and senior ministry officials reached J&K on Saturday.

Singh's visit to the state is seen as a follow-up to Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Independence Day speech in which he reached out to the people of the Valley saying "Na gaali se, na goli se, samasya suljegi gale lagane se", (Neither bullets nor recrimination, the problem will be solved by embracing Kashmiris).
