However, two of his personal security officers (PSOs) were critically injured in the attack, he said. “The attackers also decamped with two rifles,” he said.
He said one of the injured cops, identified as Mudasir Ahmad, was killed.
Militants in the afternoon hours today fired indiscriminately at the policemen in Muran village of Pulwama district who were accompanying ex-MLA Rajpora Ghulam Mohiudin.
“The protected person is safe and secure. However, one of his PSOs Mudasir who was from district Police has attained martyrdom while the other PSO Nasir from security wing is stable,” said a spokesman, in a statement.
