Jammu : Half a dozen policemen were injured on Thursday when a mob attacked a police station in Jammu and Kashmir's Poonch district, police said.

A group of Potha village residents, irate over detention of some people from the village for questioning after a rape and murder accused escaped from police custody, attacked Surankote police station, a senior police officer told IANS here.

"Around half a dozen policemen were injured after some villagers pelted stones on the police station to protest detention of locals.

The villagers also blocked Poonch-Surankote road during the protest.

The officer said efforts are on to nab the fugitive.
