Police personnel posted on guard duty at a police establishment in Pulwama district of Jammu and Kashmir today fired few rounds in the air after noticing suspicious movement near their camp.

"The sentry noticed some suspicious movement near the District Police Lines at Awantipora in Pulwama at around 3.40 am and fired few probing shots in air," a police official said.

He said there was no injury caused by the firing incident.

Militants had targeted District Police Lines in Pulwama town in August this year, killing eight security force personnel.

Three militants were also killed in the retaliatory action.
