The police say they sent in reinforcements and sealed off the area. Javed Ahmed Dar was the police officer who was killed in the attack.
Since there are some Kashmiri Pandit families living in the area, the police say they sent out a Naka Party to ensure their safety.
A tweet from former chief minister Omar Abdullah condemned the attack and offered condolences to the family of the J&K police officer who was killed while doing his job. In addition, I hope that the CRPF personnel who were hurt make a full recovery as soon as possible.”
