Two Let militants were killed Tuesday morning who were raged inside an under-construction building in Srinagar’s Karan Nagar area since Monday morning.
The operation has been going on for over 30 hours.
A police official said one militant was killed earlier in the day and the “second militant is also down now”. “However, only one body has been spotted so far. The premises are being searched for the bodies. Firing has stopped for a while,” he said.
The two militants, believed to be fidayeen, were wearing backpacks and carrying AK-47 rifles when they were spotted by a CRPF personnel around 4.30 am on Monday.
The militants tried to breach the periphery of CRPF’s 23 Battalion headquarters.
The CRPF personnel opened fire and the militants fled from the spot and shifted to a nearby building.
Meanwhile, Lashkar-e-Taiba has claimed responsibility for the attack.
