Militants detonate IED, fire at passing army vehicle in Pulwama

Militants, in a pre-dawn attack, detonated an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) to blow up an army bunker vehicle at a village in south Kashmir’s Pulwama district. The detonation was followed by firing.

A police official said that around 3:30am militants triggered an IED in Navpora Payeen village of Pulwama district when an armoured vehicle (Casper) of 44 RR was passing through the area.

“Soon after the blast, militants also fired upon the vehicle,” the official said. He added that there was no immediate report of any loss of life or injuries.

Earlier, a similar attack was carried out in May where militants triggered an IED in Turkwangam area of Shopian, causing injuries to four army men.
