The Jammu and Kashmir Police on Tuesday said that the Border Security Force (BSF) repulsed immediately and effectively after three terrorists attacked their base near the Srinagar airport this morning.

Talking to media after the encounter, Jammu and Kashmir state director general of police SP Vaid said all three militants who had sneaked into the BSF camp had been "neutralised".

Indian forces' personnel have sealed all the routes leading to the airport while flights have been suspended. The training centres of BSF and CRPF are also located in the area.

The operation against the fighters continued into the afternoon as hundreds of police, paramilitary and army personnel surrounded the area.

One of the three "fidayeen" was gunned down at the main gate while two others managed to enter barrack number 07 of the camp and then moved to other buildings, the sources said. The operation could have been finished much earlier had we used aerial weapons.

However, IGP Kashmir Munir Khan said security forces were looking for six to seven terrorists."We need to neutralise them very fast", he added.
