Sopore: Marking the return of IED attacks in Kashmir after three years, a powerful improvised explosive device (IED) blast killed four policemen in Sopore town amid a shutdown on the 25th anniversary of the Sopore massacre. "My deepest condolences to their families", Mufti said. Soon after the attack army and paramilitary forces launched searches to nab the attackers.
