Kashmir: BSF camp in Srinagar attacked, one militant killed

The militants, who had recently infiltrated from across the border, had carried out a reconnaissance of the area for some days before sneaking into the Border Security Force (BSF) camp in Humhuma.

Two militants were killed in the gunbattle that is raging near the airport, forcing brief suspension of air traffic and closure of schools in the vicinity.

Jaish-e-Mohammad, the Pakistan-based militant outfit, claimed responsibility for the attack.

Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh has called a high level meeting to discuss the security situation in Jammu and Kashmir in the wake of the militant attack at a BSF camp in Srinagar. The camp was located near Srinagar International Airport.

It so happened when, atleast four terrorists reportedly barged into the campus of the BSF 182 battalion at 4:30 am on Tuesday.

Tuesday's attack came a day after Indian soldiers killed five suspected militants near the heavily militarised Line of Control (LoC) that divides the territory with Pakistan.

Eyewitnesses said there were at least three armed attackers.

Srinagar airport has been shut down as the camp that has been attacked is close by. All morning flights to and from Srinagar airport were cancelled in view of them, officials said.
