Subsequently, the two remaining militants moved in different directions and took shelter in different buildings before being killed by security forces.
All three militants who had launched a suicide attack on a BSF camp outside the worldwide airport here on Tuesday dawn have been killed, the Border Security Force said.
Aashiq Ahmad, posted as Munshi in local police station, was shot at by militants while he was returning from the marriage ceremony of a relative at Padgampora in Awantipora, 30 kms from here, last night, a police official said.
A senior police official said that militants came from the Friends Colony side of the BSF camp. "The area has been cordoned off", he said, adding Special Forces have been called in. He said one militant was killed at the gate while two managed to get inside the camp.
Inspector General of Police Kashmir Munir Ahmed Khan told reporters during a presser that "This operation was a quality example of cooperation between the forces".
Terrorist Attack On BSF Camp In Srinagar:- In a freaky incident, a BSF camp was attacked by a few terrorists near Srinagar Airport and the Airforce station early Tuesday morning.
This is while residents of the area said they heard dozens of explosions and gunfire. Meanwhile, Jaish-e-Muhammad has claimed responsibility for the attack, reports said. However, flights resumed operating in the afternoon after the security clearance from the police.
Soon after the attack, the routes leading to the airport were sealed and all morning flights were suspended. An assistant sub-inspector of the force was also killed in the gunfight.
Describing the operation as quality example of coordination between security forces, IGP said there was no collateral damage during the operation. The same group was also involved in one of the deadliest attacks on an army installation in Uri in September 2016, in which 18 soldiers lost their lives. "Such attack will keep on happening as long as militancy is there and Pakistan is our neighbour", he said.
