NOWGAM: Vijay Kumar, Inspector General Police, Kashmir on Friday said that Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) is responsible for carrying out the attack on a police party in Nowgam in which two cops were killed.

"Two terrorists came and started firing on police personnel in which two cops were killed and one suffered injuries. We have cordoned off the whole area. Prima facie, it seems there is a hand of Jaish-e-Mohammad. We are identifying it," Kumar told reporters here.

"We received many inputs. We got an input that terrorists can strike in any area. Our police were on alert. One of the terrorists was hiding behind and started firing. We have identified him. He is from the JeM group. We will neutralise him soon. There was people's movement in the area. That's why police personnel could not fire as it would have resulted in civilian casualties," he said.
