Terrorists carried out a suicide attack on a BSF camp near the Srinagar global airport early Tuesday morning. "There is enough intelligence to believe that we can expect more attacks by them", said an intelligence official, requesting anonymity.
Khan, who heads the police force in the Kashmir Valley, denied that there had been a security breach that led to the attack. Two terrorists have been killed.
Inspector General of Police Kashmir Munir Ahmed Khan told reporters during a presser that "This operation was a quality example of cooperation between the forces".
Sources in the counter-insurgency cell said ground reports suggested that the militants were planning "a spectacular attack on the Srinagar-Jammu highway near Pampore and a government building at Lal Chowk in Srinagar". "After sometime, they were joined by police, CRPF and army in flushing out the militants".
"Employees working at the airport have been allowed to proceed but flight operations are yet to be resumed", the police official said.
The area also houses training centres of the BSF and the CRPF.
Besides the AK 47 rifles and pistols, some grenades were also recovered from the possession of the militants, said officials.
Three terrorists were killed in an eight-hour operation after which security forces stormed the campus for the remaining terrorist.
Kanwal also added that even though sentries are stationed at such camps and patrolling takes place, there is always room for militants to sneak into the camps. "They entered Gagoo Land through Friends Colony, " he said.
This battalion is entrusted with security of runway of the Srinagar airport.
