Srinagar: Four ‘Fidayeen’ militants were killed on Monday in an attack on a Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) camp 45BN in north Kashmir’s Bandipora district.
The militants attacked the CRPF camp, housing 45 BN, in Irrigation Colony area of Sumbal in north Kashmir’s Bandipora district at around 4:30 am.
“Four foreign militants were killed in retaliatory fire by troops of 45 battalion of the CRPF and J&K Police at Sumbal in Bandipora district during a suicidal attack by the militants on CRPF camp there,” a police spokesman said in Srinagar. The spokesman added the attack was effectively repulsed.
The identity of the slain militants was yet to be ascertained, said the official.
Meanwhile, DGP SP Vaid tweeted a picture of the four AK-47 rifles and other ammunition, he said, were recovered from the slain militants.
The Sumbal camp of the CRPF is the headquarter of 45th battalion which was headed by Chetan Kumar Cheeta who survived despite taking nine bullets while fighting militants in Bandipora district last year.
