Srinagar: Jammu and Kashmir Police on Monday arrested three terrorists in the Narbal near on the outskirts of Srinagar.

A police source told MyNation that three persons travelling in a car, when signalled to stop, fired upon the cops manning the post. But the policemen overpowered the three terrorists.

A senior police officer told MyNation that, following inputs from intelligence agencies, the naka (check post) was established at the spot. 

"As the car passed the naka, the security personnel asked them to stop, but the occupants of the car opened fire," he added.

In this brief encounter, a terrorist got injured while two others were overpowered by the police. The police have recovered a huge cache of arms and ammunition from the three terrorists. That includes 10 grenades.

Three BSF jawans were injured in a separate attack at the Pantha Chowk area on the outskirts of Srinagar. The whole area has been cordoned off to catch the terrorists.
