Pampore attack: Gunbattle with terrorists enters second day

Pampore attack: Gunbattle with terrorists enters second day

A soldier and a policeman were injured on Monday as security forces battled two to four guerrillas trapped in a government complex in Jammu and Kashmir's Pulwama district.

Speaking on condition anonymity, an officer alleged that units of Indian army's Special Forces, paramilitary soldiers and counterinsurgency police encircled a building in the extensive compound where suspected militants were believed to be hiding.

"We don't want any causalities this time as during February encounter, the militants inflicted heavy causalities on security forces after they tried to enter the building", he added.

The Jammu & Kashmir Entrepreneurship Development Institute (JKEDI) complex that is situated on the Srinagar-Jammu national highway, was attacked by a group of terrorists this morning. Sources said that government forces were fitting IEDs to huge EDI building where militants are holed up and then exploding them. "Kashmir will look like a bombed zone and that will be bad.We need to rethink our security strategy", a senior IAS officer told Kashmir Monitor. On Tuesday morning, security forces conducting the operation also interacted with civilian engineers who had designed the EDI building to get information on the 60-room concrete complex.

Later, when the army cordoned off the building, they were fired upon from inside, injuring an army jawan.

No. 2 Ohio State struggles at times but downs Indiana 38-17
With this much talent on the Ohio State sideline, it doesn't appear that the Buckeyes will be falling off anytime soon. After losing 12 players to the 2016 NFL Draft, you would think the Buckeyes would be due to have a rebuilding year.

The ultras could have entered the complex from the riverside but that can only be ascertained once the operation is over. Three elite para-commandos including two captains, two CRPF men and an EDI gardener, were killed and 13 personnel were injured in the three-day operation.

"Operation is still going on", Srinagar based defence spokesperson, Rajesh Kalia told Kashmir Life around 5:30 PM today.

For weeks, Indian authorities have carried out nighttime raids, rolling curfews and stops at roadblocks, but have failed to stop the rebel attacks and angry public rallies.

Sempora (Pampore), Oct. 11: Security forces are avoiding a hand-to-hand combat with the militants holed up in a seven-storied hostel on the outskirts of Srinagar to prevent army casualties that could arise out of a close-quarter fight.
