Four policemen were killed on Saturday morning when an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) was detonated by suspected militants in Baramulla's Sopore. Three shops were also demolished in the massive explosion.

Inspector General of Police Munir Khan confirmed that four policemen were killed in the incident.

Three of the deceased were identified as ASI Irshad of Doda; Mohammad Amin of Kupwara and Ghulam Nabi of Sopore.

The bomb was planted by militants near a shop amid a strike called by separatists, the Press Trust of India and other local media said. The policemen were from the 3rd Battalion of Indian Reserve Police. The area has been cordoned off and a search operation is underway.

The IED blast has occurred two days after terrorists killed a BJP worker Arif Ahmad Sofi when he was strolling outside his house at Sopore. "My deepest condolences to their families", she said on Twitter. There was heavy deployment of police and paramilitary forces in the town at the time of the incident, to maintain normalcy and prevent any protests.
