Unidentified militants opened fire at Awantipora Police Station, 32 kms from here, on Srinagar-Jammu National Highway at around 2.45 PM, officials said.

They said police personnel fired back and in the ensuing exchange, two pedestrians were injured.

Both the injured have been shifted to hospital and a hunt has been launched to nab the militants, the officials said.

The latest strike comes barely two days after militants shot dead two security personnel -- a policeman and a CRPF jawan -- and injured two others in separate attacks at Arwani in Anantnag and Almeira in Shopian district.
