Humhama attack: BSF personnel succumbs, 1 militant holed up, ops on

Share

A Jaish-e-Mohammad squad named after Afzal Guru was behind the BSF camp attack near Srinagar airport in Humhama on Tuesday. The toll, however, could have been much higher if the terrorists, who were from the Jaish-e-Mohammed group, had not be eliminated so quickly. He was even communicating with the forces through signals and perhaps planned to kill them once they moved ahead.

The airport is used primarily by the Indian Air Force to conduct air drills of its fighter aircraft and is one of the strategically important defence facilities where civilian operations often remain suspended due to security reasons.

However, three of the heavily armed terrorists were killed by the security forces in the encounter that followed.

Paddock was found dead, apparently of a self-inflicted gunshot wound, when a police SWAT team burst into his room. They said that Danley, who is Australian, had arrived in the Philippines more than a week before the shooting.

Asked if the security around BSF camps will be beefed up, the BSF DG said the security situation is reviewed from time to time.

In August this year, four paramilitary troopers of India's Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF), four policemen and two militants were killed in a similar attack on police lines in southern Pulwama district.

Locals residing close to the airport said they had been woken up by the sound of heavy gunfire. The 182 Battalion is entrusted with the security of the runway of the Srinagar airport. "A serious attack as averted which is an example of the BSF's discipline, training and bravery", he said. The airport closeby was yet to begin the day's operations.

Director General of Police SP Vaid said in a statement, "A body suspected to be that of a terrorist was found".

Officials said the militants fired indiscriminately and threw grenades at security pickets before entering the BSF camp where most inmates were asleep. Khan termed the operation as a paragon example of coordination among security forces.

"The flights are continuing and one flight has just landed in the airport from Delhi", Khan said.
