Srinagar: Attack in BSF camp, 3 terrorists killed

Srinagar Smoke billows out of the building where militants were believed to be hiding during an encounter with the security forces following their attack at a BSF camp near the international airport in Srinagar on Tuesday

An assistant sub-inspector of the BSF was also killed, and three BSF jawans injured.

"The local cadres of militants in Kashmir have been eliminated by security forces". The particular battalion handles the security of runway at the airport.

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

A senior police official said that militants came from the Friends Colony side of the BSF camp. The same squad had carried out an attack in Pulwama in August in which eight security personnel were killed, sources said.

The attack took place near the high-security Srinagar airport, causing flight operations to be suspended for the duration of the operation. "They have also enforced the shut down in Ompora Budgam", they said.

Tuesday's attack was the latest in Kashmir which has seen a spurt in militancy, often blamed on Pakistan-based outfits by India. The incident happened at 4.17 am outside the Indian Air Force station at Humhama. While one terrorist was killed by a BSF sentry at the gate, the other two entered the camp firing indiscriminately at the forces.

In a freaky incident, a BSF camp was attacked by a few terrorists near Srinagar Airport and the Airforce station early Tuesday morning. There were several guests inside the paramilitary base at the time and security services evacuated them before moving in on the militants.

Besides the AK 47 rifles and pistols, some grenades were also recovered from the possession of the militants, said officials.

A day after BSF ASI Brij Kishore Yadav was killed in a terror attack in Srinagar, his daughter Sushma Kumari on Wednesday said 100 Pakistani terrorists should be killed to compensate for her father's supreme sacrifice for the country.

The paramilitary force's chief without naming Pakistan said such attacks would continue until people across the border don't stop.

"Normal flight operations have resumed and passengers were boarding flights", said Director, Airport Authority of India, Srinagar, Sharad Kumar.
