The CRPF today claimed to have thwarted militants' bid to attack its camp in Karan Nagar area of Srinagar.
"The sentry at the camp noticed two suspicious persons at around 4.30 am, carrying back packs and weapons. He challenged them and opened fire as well," a spokesman of the CRPF said.
The militants fled from the spot, the spokesman said, adding searches were going on in the area to track down the ultras.
The incident comes two days after Jaish-e-Mohammad militants attacked an Army camp in Sunjwan area of Jammu, killing six people including five soldiers.
