In what security officers find “slightly odd” in a fidayeen attack that appears to have been launched from Pakistan, security forces have not recovered any food item or medicines from the rucksacks of the two militants who were killed in Srinagar on Tuesday after a 30-hour gunbattle with security forces.
CRPF sources said it took a long time to kill the militants, even though they were holed up in an under-construction building, because there are many residential units in the congested neighbourhood. “We were not in a position to fire very large-area weapons to bring down the building, as we would have jeopardised other buildings in the area,” a senior CRPF officer said.
