Srinagar: In an audacious attack, militants helped a Pakistani Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) terrorist escape by firing at the police party escorting him to hospital here on Tuesday, leaving one policeman dead and another wounded.

Authorities have sounded a high alert in the city.

Naveed Jat alias Abu Hunzullah escaped when the waiting militants fired at the police party outside SMHS hospital.

A senior police officer said the militants were waiting outside the hospital to carry out the attack. Hunzullah was being taken to the hospital for treatment from Srinagar central jail.

The officer refuted media reports that the escaped militant had snatched the rifle of a policeman before escape.

The area around the hospital has been sealed.

Vehicles moving in the city are being searched to trace the escaped LeT militant who was arrested last year in south Kashmir's Shopian district.

The slain policeman has been identified as constable Mushtaq Ahmad. The injured policeman has been shifted to hospital.
