Jammu and Kashmir: A Tehreek-ul-Mujahideen (TuM) terrorist was killed in Jammu and Kashmir's Pulwama district Wednesday.
Faizan Majeed Bhat, a resident of Tral in Pulwama district, was involved in a grenade attack on a police party in Baramulla's Pattan that injured three policemen few days ago.
"Based on credible inputs that some terrorists are travelling on the Baramulla-Srinagar highway, a police team set up a checkpoint at Baba Teng Pattan," a police spokesman said.
He said one of the vehicles was signalled to stop but the militants inside the vehicle hurled a grenade.
"One police officer, DySp Zafar Mehdi and two other cops -- Shabir Ahmad and Ashiq Hussain -- sustained injuries," the spokesman said.
A cache of arms and ammunition has been recovered.
Bhat's accomplice Showkat Ahmad Bhat, however, managed to escape. The duo had recently joined the Tehreekul Mujahideen outfit, police said.
