    SRINAGAR: In a major strike on the eve of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's visit, militants opened fire on Monday at an Army convoy at Hyderpora bypass on the outskirts of the city, killing four jawans and injuring seven others.

    An Army officer confirmed the casualties to Times Now.

    Meanwhile, Pakistan-based banned terror outfit Hizbul Mujahideen has claimed the responsibility for the attack.

    The convoy was fired at from both sides of the road near Classic Hospital this evening, police said, adding that the militants fired over a dozen rounds.

    Three jawans sustained bullet wounds in the attack and their condition was 'critical', police said.

    Militants fled from the spot in a tinted car. A motorcycle, possibly used by the ultras, has been recovered.

    Army troops immediately cordoned off the area and a massive hunt has been launched to nab the militants involved in the attack, police said.

    Today's attack comes two days after Hizbul Mujahideen militants gunned down two policemen in the heart of Srinagar city.

    The brazen attack came even as security has been beefed up across the Valley in view of Prime Minister's two-day visit.

    PMO sources in Delhi said that there was no change in Singh's programme.

    The Prime Minister is scheduled to reach here tomorrow along with UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi on a two-day visit, during which he is expected to announce a package for border districts of Jammu and Kashmir.

    Singh and Gandhi will also launch train service on a railway section between Qazigund in Kashmir and Banihal in Jammu region that will provide an all-weather link to the Valley.

    This proves that militants can still strike at will and kill army men in numbers contrary to claims made by the security forces. A couple of terrorists can kill army men like cattle and then escape. While thousands of security forces are not able to catch them. Speaks of their communication network.

    Something is wrong with the approach of security forces.

    In my city, even bike borne chain snatchers are chased and caught within minutes and made to taste the smell of police boots.

    Any attack on army should be retaliated swiftly and attackers should be chased to the end of the land.
