SRINAGAR (Reuters) – Indian police yesterday killed three suspected militants in army uniforms after they infiltrated a security camp beside the main airport in the disputed region of Kashmir, officials said, an assault claimed by an Islamist group. One Indian security official was killed and three wounded in
a gunfight that followed. Islamist group Jaish-e-Mohammad has taken responsibility for the attack, Kashmir police chief Muneer Khan said. Under cover of darkness, the militants cut a fence to enter the camp in the early hours yesterday, he added. The security camp of India’s Border Security Force shares a boundary wall with the airport in Srinagar. Its main gate was about 500 metres from the airport.
