The attack took place on the BSF 182 battalion camp which is near the Srinagar global airport.

All three militants who had launched a suicide attack on a BSF camp outside the worldwide airport here on Tuesday dawn have been killed, the Border Security Force said.

Khan said the militants broke into the 182 Battalion Camp of the BSF through a fence adjoining a residential area.

The targeted camp previously served as one of several notorious interrogation centers where Indian authorities detained, questioned and allegedly tortured pro-independent militants and their sympathizers.

The attack resulted in the delay of landing and departure of some of the flights at Srinagar International Airport for quite some time, however, the airport was soon re-opened for civilians flying out of Srinagar. However, the name of the highly fortified Srinagar airport did not come up during the investigation. Reports state that an exchange of fire was going on between the terrorists and security forces when the incident occurred.

The terrorists who were in military fatigues violated four layers of security at the camp, to which Indian soldiers retaliated and shot down one of the attackers. "Firing is ongoing", BSF officials added.

While the passengers have now been allowed to move further after being checked-in, operations of air traffic had not started yet.

Soon after the attack, the routes leading to the airport were sealed and all morning flights were suspended.

The area also houses training centres of the BSF and the CRPF.

Besides the AK 47 rifles and pistols, some grenades were also recovered from the possession of the militants, said officials.
