Militants today carried out a pre- dawn suicide attack on a BSF camp near the high-security Srinagar International airport here, leaving three jawans and a policeman injured while security forces killed two ultras.
The militants were killed in the exchange of fire, a police spokesman said.
The attack took place at 4.00 am and the exchange of fire is still on between the militants and security forces, they said.
The terrorists are holed up inside the building campus of the 182nd Battalion camp, BSF officials said.
Outbound passengers have been now allowed to proceed towards the airport where operations were initially suspended as security forces engaged militants who breached the 182 battalion headquarters of the BSF located in Gogoland, police said.
This battalion is entrusted with the security of the runway of the Srinagar Airport.
The area also houses training centres of the BSF and the CRPF.
Schools in the vicinity of the airport have been closed.
