Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi Monday said the two suspected militant strikes in Srinagar in which three policemen were killed were “extremely worrying”.

“News of terror attacks in Zadibal & Tengpora in Srinagar extremely worrying. My condolences to families of policemen martyred in these attacks (sic),” Gandhi tweeted.

Suspected militants today carried out two strikes within as many hours in the summer capital of Jammu and Kashmir, killing three policemen, including an officer, and decamping with service rifle of one of the slain cops.

These major attacks in the city come after nearly three years. The last such attack took place on June 22, 2013 when two policemen were shot dead at Hari Singh High Street.
