3 militants, BSF man killed in Humhama Fidayeen attack

Suicide attack on BSF camp at Srinagar

Soon after the attack, a hurriedly convened security-review meeting discussed the "possible security measures" for the future.

Three terrorists were killed after they entered a Border Security Force camp near the high-security Srinagar airport this morning and started shooting.

One of the three Jaish terrorists was killed minutes after the three attempted laying siege to the headquarters of the BSF's 182 battalion in Humhama, Srinagar. Government Forces including BSF, 53 Rashtriya Rifles, CRPF and SOG of Jammu Kashmir Police cordoned off the building while a large number of security personnel engaged militants in fire fight. However, in order to avoid the increasing inconvenience, passengers are being let in at Srinagar Airport after thorough checking. "Firing is ongoing", BSF officials were quoted by PTI.

One BSF trooper was killed in the attack, while three other jawans were injured.

According to a senior police officer, there are almost 70 terrorists, mostly Pakistanis, operating in north Kashmir's Baramulla, Bandipora and Kupwara districts.

The Pakistan-backed Jaish-e-Mohammad terrorist outfit has claimed responsibility for the attack.

Most people in the Indian-controlled portion favour independence or a merger with Pakistan. The old airfield, being manned by the Indian Air Force, is also located in the area. That is why Pakistan is now pushing in foreign terrorists in huge numbers, they say.
