Gunmen attack construction workers in held Kashmir, kill three
SRINAGAR: Several unidentified gunmen attacked a camp housing road construction workers in Indian-occupied Jammu and Kashmir on Monday, killing three labourers before fleeing, said police.
Two or three gunmen launched the raid on the General Reserve Engineer Force camp in Jourian, close to India’s disputed border with Pakistan, after midnight, a police official from Jourian told Reuters by telephone.
The army had since cordoned off the camp and launched a search for the gunmen, said the official, who asked not to be identified because he was not authorised to speak to the media.
