NEW DELHI: One CRPF personnel was martyred in an ongoing gun battle with terrorists in Srinagar’s Karan Nagar area after a bid to storm CRPF headquarters earlier today was successfully thwarted by security forces.

“Two militants tried to barge into CRPF headquarters in the morning. They couldn’t enter the headquarters but sneaked in a building close to the HQ. Five families have been evacuated. Operation is on,” said IG CRPF Ravideep Sahai.

Earlier today, an attack on CRPF headquarters was foiled after a CRPF personnel spotted two terrorists, carrying bags and AK47 rifles, approaching the camp. The terrorists managed to flee the scene after the personnel opened fire on them.

“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.

Later, intermittent exchange of fire was reported from the area, following which, the CRPF moved in more troops to ensure that the militants do not escape.

A gunfight ensued after personnel of CRPF Valley QAT and 23 Bn CRPF managed to corner the two terrorists who had taken shelter in a house.

Security forces have cordoned off the area and efforts are on to evacuate civilians from houses around encounter site.

A search operation was launched in the area and it appears that a contact was established with the terrorists during the search operation.

Two days ago, armed terrorists had stormed the Sunjuwan Army camp in Jammu, killing five security personnel and one civilian. Six army personnel and six civilians were injured. Four terrorists were also neutralised by the security forces.
