Srinagar, Feb. 22 (ANI): The army personnel on Monday seized three AK-47 rifles during the search operation of Entrepreneurship Development Institute (EDI) building in Pampore, from which the militants were flushed out after nearly 48-hour of gun battle.
The standoff in Pampore came to an end this evening, after the terrorists attacked a CRPF convoy and took refuge in the EDI building on Saturday.
“Three militants killed, and a lot of arms and war-like ammunitions have been recovered. They were foreign terrorists and were heavily armed,” Major General Arvind Dutta of Victor Force, told the media here.
Two officers of the rank of captain and a Lance Naik from the elite Para force of the Army were killed while trying to flush out the militants.
While Captain Pawan Kumar was killed in a pre-dawn exchange of fire, Captain Tushar Mahajan and Lance Naik Om Prakash sustained fatal injuries in the afternoon on Sunday. (ANI)
