Srinagar: Three persons were on Saturday killed when militants attacked a Central Reserve Police Force camp in Shopian district of Jammu and Kashmir.

Unidentified militants opened fire at the CRPF camp at Gagran in Shopian, 52 kms from here, at around 1.00 PM and the security personnel retaliated, Inspector General of Police, Kashmir, AG Mir said.
