Srinagar: Director General of Jammu and Kashmir police, K Rajindra Kumar on Monday said the killing of three policemen in twin attacks by militants was a "desperate act" by them to show their presence here.
"It (killing of policemen) is a desperate act, attacking unarmed policemen...it is basically a desperate act to show their presence," Kumar said after praying tributes to slain personnel.

"Of late, you have been seeing that security forces are getting success in neutralising (militant) leadership. Newly infiltrated groups have also been wiped off," the police chief said.
Kumar said terror outfit Hizbul Mujahideen's claim owing responsibility for the two incidents, will be investigated.
"We will investigate and come back with facts," Kumar said.
Two policemen were shot dead by militants at Zadibal while another was killed in Tengpora area of the city this morning.
