Wreath laying ceremony of the two martyred soldiers - Head Constable Mushtaq Ahmad, resident of Dildar Karnah, and Constable Babar Ahmad Khan, resident of Shangus Achabal- was held at District Police Lines Srinagar.

Jatt, who was arrested in 2014, had told police that he had trained with Ajmal Kasab, the lone gunman captured alive after the 26/11 Mumbai terror attack.

In a 2014 firing incident in Shopian, five security forces personnel and two civilians were injured. Parray said the terrorists appeared to be well aware of the area where the hospital is located, which indicates it was a well-planned attack.

Police officials said that they wanted to shift Jhutt and the five other prisoners from Srinagar jail to prisons outside the Valley but were disallowed to do so by a sessions court on December 26, 2017.
