A police official told Rising Kashmir that four CRPF men have been killed while two militants who had stormed Group Training Centre in Latpora were also killed in the encounter.

The martyred Odia jawan was identified as Pradeep Kumar Panda of Liploi village in Rajgangpur of Sundergarh district.

Three terrorists have been killed so far.




Meanwhile, Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) militant outfit has claimed responsibility for the fidayeen attack. The terrorists opened fire and launched grenade in the camp.

"There is quite possibility of similar type of attack on other camp also" CRPF said. The exchange of fire was on when reports last came in. Terming the attack as "dastardly", the chief minister said violence had taken a heavy toll in the state in terms of death and destruction, tearing apart of the social fabric, inflicting massive economic, academic and social losses besides the irreparable loss of human lives. They (militants) were trying.

The sources said main building consist of three blocks, four floor each, block one is used for officer's family accommodation, second block is for main office and block three has been targeted by militants. They probably could not get a place and time earlier. Having spent eight years in the Tihar jail, the Jaish militant rejoined militancy in 2015 and escalated terror activities since then.
