Trumbo singled to start the fifth inning before Mancini crushed a two-run shot to deep left for a 6-2 Baltimore advantage. He pitched six innings, allowed no runs on six hits and got a nice ovation from the crowd when he left in the seventh.

The incident comes just a couple of days after security forces carried out a major combing operation in the neighbouring Shopian district to flush out militants.

"The police retaliated in which LeT militant Fayaz Ahmad was killed and another was injured".

Anti-India sentiment runs deep in the predominantly Muslim Kashmir valley, one of the world's most heavily militarised areas, where most people favour independence or a merger with Pakistan.

Innocent civilians were beaten by Indian troops during the operation, which led to clashes between the Indian troops and the youth, locals reported.

The attack came hours after the government suspended cash transactions at almost 40 branches in sensitive areas of Pulwama and Shopian districts in South Kashmir.
