Terrorists attack BSF camp in Srinagar; 1 terrorist killed, 3 jawans injured

Indian troops martyr four more Kashmiri youth in Srinagar Kupwara districts

The attack reportedly took place took place at 4.00 AM and exchange of firing was going on between the militants and security forces, they said.

Earlier, a militant was killed and at least three troopers injured in a militant attack at a Border Security Force (BSF) camp near the Srinagar airport.

The attack on the BSF camp near the Srinagar airport on Tuesday could have resulted to more casualties had the troops not identified one of the terrorists in the nick of time. In response, a security operation was launched by Army para-commandos, the BSF, Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) and state police personnel to flush out the remaining militants.

Meet was held to deliberate upon the "enhancement and improvise" of security measures at airport. Operations are underway to nab them, also senior officers are monitoring the situation very closely.

"We want 100 Pakistani terrorists' heads for my father's sacrifice", Sushma said.

Inspector General (IG) of Police, Kashmir, Munir Khan confirmed that three gunned down terrorists during an encounter belonged to terror outfit- Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM).




He is believed to have trained in Pakistan and is now active in north Kashmir's Sopore area. He told CNN-News18, "I have spoken to DG CRPF and DG BSF". That is why Pakistan is now pushing in foreign terrorists in huge numbers, they say.

The body of the second terrorist is yet to be retrieved.

The Indian authorities blamed Jaish-e-Muhammad, a militant group based in Pakistan, for the attack as they have other recent ones in Kashmir, including an attack past year that left 19 Indian soldiers dead in the border town of Uri.

The fire fight, which went on for almost ten hours, ended in the afternoon after the last militant, who had holed up in the BSF camp, was shot dead.

Members of the "Afzal Guru Squad" had attacked a district police lines (DPL) in south Kashmir in August in a similar style.

The paramilitary force's chief without naming Pakistan said such attacks would continue until people across the border don't stop. Khan termed the operation as a paragon example of coordination among security forces.
