At least 6-7 rounds were fired by suspected terrorists on the Indian Army and the CRPF at Drabgam in Pulwama district of Jammu and Kashmir on Tuesday, October 29. The terrorists have reportedly fled after shooting near the board exam centre.
However, no injuries have been reported at the time of filing the report. The CRPF and the local police were deployed to guard the centre where board exams for Class 10 were being held under a tight security arrangement.
The area has been cordoned off and security forces have launched a search operation. Additional forces have also been deployed due to security purposes.
EU delegation visits Kashmir
The firing comes on a day when a delegation of the European parliamentary panel members are on a visit to Jammu and Kashmir to assess the ground situation here. The EU parliamentarians will be allowed to visit Srinagar only while their visit to Kupwara region has been cancelled.
Most of the MPs visiting J&K are from far-right parties. Only three of the 27 MPs belong to the Left or liberal parties. Six French MPs are from Le Pen's National Front, all six Polish MPs are from the ruling far-right party and four British MPs are from the Brexit party.
