[Representational Image] J&K: Encounter with security forces, army leaves 2 militants dead.Reuters

One policeman and a civilian were killed when militants attacked a police post in Tujar Sharief village in Jammu and Kashmir's Sopore district.

Another policeman was injured in the attack.

An ecounter between the militants and the security forces was still on.

Another media report said the policemen were guarding a mosque when they were attacked.

The latest attack comes soon after the National Investigation Agency (NIA) released sketches of two Pakistani terrorists who had infiltrated into India along with Mohammed Naveed alias Usman--the Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) operative caught alive after he attacked a BSF convoy at Narsu Nallah in Udhampur district on 5 August.

The NIA has announced a reward of Rs 5 lakh each on the two terrorists--Zargham alias Mohammad Bhai and Abu Okasha--absconding after infiltrating into India from Pakistan in June.

Naveed and his accomplice Noman had attacked the BSF convoy in Udhampur, killing two soldiers and injuring 11 others. While Noman was killed in retaliatory fire, Naveed managed to flee to a nearby house where he held three civilians as hostages. However, the hostages overpowered Naveed and handed him over to the security forces.

Naveed, who was sent to 14-day judicial custody, will undergo a lie-detector test at Delhi's Central Forensic Science Laboratory on Tuesday.
