Srinagar: At least four terrorists were killed when the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) on Monday foiled an early morning suicide attack on one of its camp in Bandipora district of Jammu and Kashmir.

The terrorists lobbed grenades at the CRPF's 45 Battalion camp in north Kashmir's Sumbal region around 0345 hours followed by heavy firing.

CRPF Deputy Inspector General M. Dinakaran stated, "The fidayeen militants kept firing as they tried to enter the camp. The attack was effectively repulsed by the CRPF sentry and Sumbal Police."

Luckily, no loss was reported from the CRPF side, he added.

Dinakar further said that several weapons were recovered along with the bodies of four militants, whose identity is yet to be established.

Four AK-47 rifles, over a dozen grenades and a huge cache of ammunition have also been seized

The Sumbal camp of the CRPF is the headquarters of the 45th battalion which was headed by Chetan Kumar Cheeta, who survived despite taking nine bullets while fighting militants in Bandipora in 2016.
