Team of fact-checkers at NewsMobile checked the above posts and found that the claims attached with the video are false.
Firstly the video is NOT from Jammu and Kashmir, but it is from Jharkhand’s Khunti when police were holding a mock drill.
On putting keyframes of the video through Reverse Image Search, we found the same video on YouTube dated November 1st, 2017.

Meanwhile, towards the end of the video, an announcement can be heard in which cops are informing about the mock drill.
Hence, the above information proves that the video is not from Jammu and Kashmir as claimed above.
