Suspected Islamic militants on Tuesday shot and killed two policemen in separate incidents in Srinagar, Indian-controlled Kashmir's main city, police said. In the first incident an officer was standing by his vehicle in the Batmaloo neighborhood in Srinagar when he was shot twice by gunmen, said area police commander Arvind Roy. He was rushed to a nearby hospital, but declared dead on arrival, Roy said. Several hours later a second policeman was shot dead at close range while on duty in the Hazratbal neighborhood, said police officer Sajad Ahmed. No militant group claimed responsibility for the shootings, which follow a similar attack on an officer on Sunday. Police said they believed one group was behind the slayings.
