Clashes As 'Rebels' Storm Indian Base In Kashmir

Posted October 05, 2017

While it is not possible to stop suicide attacks, the security response to such attempts is more important, BSF Director General K K Sharma said, a day after terrorists struck a camp of the border-guarding force.

Suicide attackers of the Pakistan-based JeM terror group stormed a BSF camp with guns and explosives near the Srinagar airport on Tuesday morning, leading to battles that left all three attackers and a trooper dead.

"A group of 2-3 militants carried out an attack at the BSF camp of the 182 battalion BSF headquarters near Srinagar airport of Hamaama district, Budgam". In August, at least eight Indian police officials were killed when militants attacked a security camp in southern Kashmir.

Mr. Khan said the Srinagar airport was not the main target of the militants. "Firing is ongoing", BSF officers said. "It was a good operation that they have conducted", he told reporters. He said the three militants dispersed and one went towards the canteen where he was immediately killed.

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

Jaish-e-Mohammad militant outfit has claimed responsibility for the attack.

He is believed to have trained in Pakistan and is now active in north Kashmir's Sopore area.

However, IGP Kashmir Munir Khan said security forces were looking for six to seven terrorists."We need to neutralise them very fast", he added.

"The three terrorists did not carry any I Card, food or medicine packets on them this time".

Two terrorists have been killed.

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.
