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

In the attack, atleast one terrorist and three Border Security Force (BSF) troopers were injured.

As the militants entered the camp's administrative block, they were surrounded by the forces, police said.

The gunmen believed to be fidayeen (suicide attackers) militants indiscriminately used heavy gunfire and grenades while making their entry inside the border guards camp near highly fortified Indian air force station and global airport at Srinagar city, the summer capital of Indian-controlled Kashmir. "The others were since hiding waiting to target camps of military, BSF, CRPF or Jammu and Kashmir police".

Meanwhile, airport operations have been suspended as the security forces were engaged with the remaining terrorists holed-up in a nearby building.

Sources said that security agencies were ascertaining as to how the armed fidayeen breached multiple layer security to sneak into the camp close to Srinagar Airport, which is a highly fortified zone. The resultant gun battle and explosions rattled the area, forced closure of the airport for several hours and ended hours later with the killing of three militants and a BSF officer.

Flight services are however yet to resume and a final decision would be taken by the Airport Authority of India following a security clearance.
