“10-12 gun shots were heard from the STF Post Tanta. One of the injured SPOs has received a bullet in his neck and the other in his abdomen,” said the officer.

“We are investigating the matter, as it could be a result of rivalry or external attack as well. As of now, we have also started a search operation in adjoining forest area as a precautionary measure,” he added.

Both the injured SPOs are undergoing treatment at District Hospital Doda where from they would be airlifted to Jammu for specialized treatment.

The injured SPOs have been identified as Kikar Singh No 1669/SPO and Mohd Younis No 1752/SPO
