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. "As long as our neighbour keep on sending people like this, my police, my security forces and people of Kashmir will have to go through this", The DGP said.

The attack comes days after India claimed it killed three Pakistani soldiers in a cross-LoC attack. "Soon after the attack, reinforcement of Army's special forces and Special Operation Group of Jammu and Kashmir rushed to the spot and cordoned off the whole area amid fierce gunfight", the source added.

Two more CRPF personnel were killed and two others were injured in the gunbattle that ensued. While one of them died on the spot, the other three succumbed to injuries in the hospital.

As exchange of fire continued following the infiltration, militants were holed up in a building block at the camp - where they were later gunned down. Meanwhile, terror outfit Jaish-e-Mohammad claimed responsibility for the Fidayeen attack on Lethpora CRPF camp.

Tantray, the 47-year-old JeM divisional terrorist was a four feet two inches tall militant, who also walked with a limp and had become a major headache for the security forces in the valley. A statement issued to local media said the "blood of martyrs is yielding results".
