Srinagar, Feb 13 (IBNS)  At least two terrorists were killed in an ongoing encounter with the security forces in Srinagar's Karan Nagar locality on Tuesday afternoon, Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) officials confirmed.

“Both militants were killed during a 24 hour long gunbattle. The bodies have been recovered along with arms and ammunition from the encounter site,” a CRPF official told IBNS.

Earlier on Monday morning the  CRPF men foiled  a "possible Fidayeen attack" on their camp and opened fire on suspected militants who were trying to enter into the premises.

However the militants managed to escape and took shelter in a nearby building, leading to a standoff.

"When Reserve force cordoned off the area and start searching, the hiding militants opened fire on a party which led to encounter," a CRPF spokesman told IBNS.

During the gunfight, a soldier of the CRPF was martyred and two policemen were injured, the spokesman added.

The CRPF camp is near the hospital from where a Pakistani militant escaped on Feb 6.

Throughout the day loud gunshots could be heard as security forces engaged with the two militants.

Yesterday's attempt to attack the CRPF camp comes just two days after a terror attack in Jammu's Sunjuwan army base camp, in which five soldiers and a civilian were killed. At least ten people, including soldiers, women and children, were injured.
