Rebels storm Indian paramilitary camp in Kashmir; 3 killed

Latest visual from the BSF camp in Srinagar

The three BSF jawans were injured at the beginning of the attack and one militant killed in the retaliatory fire, PTI reported a police official as saying.

"I think they have owned responsibility for the attack".

"Initially, we thought it is the usual airdrop that happens around the army camps here", Qazi Anjum, who lives 100 metres away from the airport, told Al Jazeera.

The terrorists, wearing military fatigue, are believed to have tried to force entry by cutting the perimeter fence of the 182 battalion of the BSF at 3:45am. Usually, these articles give us clear evidence about their origin.

Sharma said they receive information about possible fidayeen attacks on security force camps from intelligence agencies.

Eyewitnesses said there were at least three armed attackers. All these things will keep happening, as long as Pakistan is our neighbour.




Khan, who heads the police force in the Kashmir Valley, denied that there had been a security breach that led to the attack. This season alone 130-150 militants have been killed and now the JeM is trying to push its forces forward in Kashmir.

The fidayeen attack (suicide attack) was carried out at around 4:30 AM, reports claimed that terrorists came on foot. Police suspect these four terrorists might have sneaked into Srinagar city.

But the presence of well-trained Pakistani militants in south and north Kashmir could mean more fidayeen-style attacks in different parts of the restive region. He went missing from his residence after being released. The terrorists entered the colony after cutting through the wires and fences, and entered two separate buildings leading to a fierce gunfight.

However, during first contact, BSF troops eliminated one terrorist forcing the remaining forces to move towards two different buildings, including an empty administrative building. "Firing is ongoing", BSF officers said.

Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh also stated that he had spoken to the directors general of the BSF and CRPF regarding the situation. The area also houses training centres of the BSF and Central Reserve Police Force. Officials say the operation was a ideal example of good cooperation and communication with all forces.

The closeness of the BSF camp to the airport led to panic but officers said, prima facie it looks like the attack was targeted at the BSF camp.
