Suspected militants tonight attacked a police post in a remote area of Udhampur district of Jammu and Kashmir, injuring two special police officers (SPOs), a day after a terror strike there saw a Pakistani terrorist being captured by villagers.

According to a senior district official, the militants attacked the post in the mountainous Basantgarh area of the district at 9:15 P.M, leaving the two SPOs injured even as the security personnel deployed there retaliated to the firing.

Additional police and army personnel have been rushed to the area to deal with the situation, the senior district official said, adding that further details are awaited.

In the attack yesterday in Udhampur, two heavily-armed terrorists believed to be from Pakistan ambushed a BSF convoy, killing two constables. While one of the terrorists was killed, the other was caught alive in a manner identical to the nabbing of 26/11 attacker Ajmal Kasab.
