According to a police official, the incident took place on Sunday late night.

He crossed the security fence and came close to the station perimeter wall, he claimed.

A Srinagar-based Army spokesman said two to three militants opened fire and lobbed grenades around 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday at Awantipora's Malangpora area.
