Shortly after their entry, there was heavy barrage of fire and explosions between militants and the security personnel. However, flights resumed operating in the afternoon after the security clearance from the police. All morning flights to and from Srinagar airport were cancelled in view of them, officials said. In the retaliatory action by the troops, 01 Fidayeen also killed.

The militants are holed-up inside the building campus of the 182nd Battalion camp, officers said. The particular battalion handles the security of runway at the airport.

It was reported that the attack took place at around 4.00 a.m. where it leads to the exchange of firing between the terrorists and security forces.

The militants attacked 182 battalion camp of the BSF near the Srinagar global airport early on Tuesday.
