Security forces confirm killing three militants of ‘Afzal Guru squad’

Contrary to certain media reports that four militants had stormed at a Border Security Force (BSF)

Contrary to certain media reports that four militants had stormed at a Border Security Force (BSF) camp at Humhama near the Srinagar Airport and the Air Force Station at dawn on Tuesday, the security forces confirmed to media outlets that there were mere three such militants and all have been killed in the gun-battle.

Jaish-e-Muhammad while claiming responsibility for carrying out the attack has said that the members of its ‘Shaheed Afzal Guru squad’ did it. One BSF jawan was killed and four others including a Jammu and Kashmir policeman were injured in the initial militant attack and subsequent encounter. The gunmen barged into the campus of the BSF’s 182 battalion at 4:30 am and took positions in administrative building and JCO Mess. The police sources said the militants hurled hand grenades and simultaneously opened fire at the sentry posts to sneak inside the camp. One of the three ‘fidayeen’ was gunned down at the main gate while two others managed to enter barrack number 07 of the camp and then moved to other buildings, the sources said.

The Army’s 53 Rajput Rifles, the BSF, Jammu and Kashmir police’s counterinsurgency Special Operations Group (SOG) and the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) quickly launched an operation to flush out militants. The area where the attack took place falls is an area of central district of Budgam which is considered as ‘most secured’. While the Srinagar Airport and Air Force Station fall in close proximity of the BSF camp, other security forces including SOG and the CRPF too have their important installations and camps in the area. Giving the gravity of the situation, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh called a high-level meeting on Tuesday to review the situation in Jammu and Kashmir in the aftermath of the attack on the BSF camp. The flight operation at the Srinagar airport has resumed after cancellation of some of the morning flights. “Morning flights were cancelled, However, Air Asia flight from Delhi landed at the airport at 10 am. Also the passengers scheduled fly out of Srinagar are being allowed to proceed towards the airport,” a police official said.
