BSF camp attack: Two JeM militants killed, four jawans injured

JeM attack on BSF camp 3 terrorists jawan killed near Srinagar airport

Two militants have been killed so far while a BSF jawan identified as B K Yadav laid down his life while battling the attackers, officials said. The identity is yet to ascertained, director general of police S.P. Vaid said.

Undeterred, the two surviving militants launched a fresh attack, firing at the BSF camp.

"When they can strike near an air force base, they can strike anywhere", said Imran Ahmad Mir, a university student in the Humhama neighborhood.

Airport operations were suspended in the morning due to the gunfight but later resumed as security forces managed to limit the action around the building where the militants are holed up.

Three terrorists entered the BSF 182 Battalion Headquarters at 4.05 am on Tuesday.

Heavily armed militants stormed an Indian Border Security Force (BSF) camp early Tuesday in disputed Jammu and Kashmir's capital.

Moreover, to avoid any inconvenience, the passengers are being allowed to enter the Srinagar Airport. By that time the Rashtriya Rifles, SOG (Special Operations Group) and CRPF also joined the operation.

He said the militants didn't target the airport.

However, IGP Kashmir Munir Khan said security forces were looking for six to seven terrorists."We need to neutralise them very fast", he added. "It was a good operation that they have conducted", he told reporters. Following intelligence inputs, the force warned its soldiers to remain vigilant if on leave and off duty. Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh called a meeting at New Delhi at 1130 hrs to review the security situation in Kashmir, reports reaching here said.

This is the second such attack carried out by the terror outfit recently, after the attack carried one on the district police line in Pulwama.

"Our men were alert and prepared to deal with such attack and that is why we were able to neutralise the militants with less damage", he said. However, one junior BSF officer succumbed to fidayeen's bullets at Army's Base Hospital in Srinagar.
