The policemen were found with their faces mutilated beyond recognition as the terrorists fired at them even after they were dead, all over the bodies, including their faces. The incident took place on Friday evening when Feroz Ahmed, a 2010 batch Sub-Inspector, was on his way to the police station at Achabal after completing his duty in Anantnag.

Its spokesperson Dr Abdullah Ghaznavi, in a statement to news agency CNS, said six policemen were killed in the attack carried out by them at Tajwah in Achabal.

Sources said they were on barricade duty at Thajiwara in Achabal following inputs of terrorist movement in the area. The other martyred include a driver and four other policemen who were on a routine round in their jeep.
