BSF camp near Srinagar attacked, two militants, one jawan killed

Jaish-e-Mohammad fidayeen storm BSF camp near Srinagar Airport; 2 attackers killed

Two terrorists have been killed in the ongoing gunfight while three BSF personnel have sustained injuries. "I have spoken to the DG CRPF and DG BSF".

Briefing reporters later in the day, Inspector General of Police (Kashmir range) Muneer Khan said there was no doubt that Jaish-e-Mohammed was behind the attack. It has been reported that at least 3 to 4 terrorists are being holed at the attack site. Three BSF jawans were injured while an assistant sub-inspector of the force was killed in this initial volley of gunfire and grenades. BSF sources told Mirror that at the time of the attack, five BSF officers were present at the officers' mess and they were evacuated.

Police officials had then said that the module, headed by Khalid, was responsible for the attack on an army convoy in Baramulla in August past year, which killed two Army men and one policeman.

The Security Agencies and Airport Authority of India (AAI) have made a decision to increase vigil in and around the Srinagar airport following the attack on a nearby BSF camp on Tuesday. Attack was repulsed very effectively. "We will have to deal with this group separately", Khan said.

"In the August incident, a Jaish-e-Mohammad group infiltrated the borders from the Jammu area".

The third terrorist of the fidayeen squad, wearing combat uniform like the other two, had taken position with the forces and had trained his gun in the same direction as the soldiers.

After being confined to the building, the BSF troops began pounding the terrorists hiding inside with heavy artillery fire. "They breached the BSF camp by cutting a fence between Friends Colony and Gogoland", the IGP said.

Home Minister Rajnath Singh congratulated the forces on the successful operation.

Activities of the nearby Srinagar airport have been curtailed and the Kashmir Valley School located close by has been ordered shut.

After the attack on Tuesday, the police said they were looking for seven more militants from the same group.
