Srinagar: Militants snatched five rifles from police guards on Tuesday evening posted at the Shopian district court complex in south Kashmir, police told a news agency on Wednesday.

The militants attacked the guard room of the court complex around 9 PM and snatched five self-loading rifles (SLRs) from the policemen posted there.

All the five policemen were suspended for the alleged dereliction of duty as they offered no resistance when the militants looted their weapons, they said.

An alert was sounded in the district after the incident.
