Militants barge into police post, fled with weapons

Militants Tuesday evening snatched five rifles from police guards posted at the Shopian district court complex in south Kashmir, police said.

The militants attacked the guard room of the court complex around 9PM and snatched five self-loading rifles (SLRs) from the policemen posted there.

All the five policemen were suspended for the alleged dereliction of duty as they offered no resistance when the militants looted their weapons, they said.

An alert was sounded in the district following the snatching incident.
