"There are lessons which we learn from such incidents... The various agencies will investigate it so that the people behind these attacks are brought to book," General Officer Commanding of 15 Corps Lt General Subrata Saha told reporters on the sidelines of a function.

He said the policemen were unarmed and attending to a normal civil case when the militants attacked them.

"We offer our deep condolences to the families of these brave cops," he expressed.

Replying to a question, Lt Gen Saha cited the spurt in militant attacks cannot be termed as resurgence or revival of militancy in the Valley.

"It would be resurgence of militancy had it come to zero," he added.

Asked about revocation of the controversial AFSPA from Kashmir, the Army officer said the matter was being discussed by the state government and the Centre.
