Security forces have cordoned off entire camp from outside to prevent any attack.

She paid rich tributes to the jawans including an officer, killed in the post-midnight attack on the training centre at Lethpora in south Kashmir.

Chief minister Mehbooba Mufti and two former CM and NC president and working president Dr Farooq Abdullah and Omar Abdullah have condoled the death of CRPF personnel. He expressed his solidarity with the bereaved families and prayed for eternal peace to the departed souls. A CRPF official said the "heavily armed militants stormed the camp at about 2 am". Meanwhile director general of police (DGP) SP Vaid at a press conference here said, the trend of local boys joining militancy has gone down.

However, unconfirmed reports said one more militant was killed but bodies of only two have so far been recovered.

A Jammu and Kashmir Police team is also co-located with CRPF in this camp. The CRPF said, "There is full apprehension that such attacks may occur in other camps too". The terror group Jaish-e-Mohammed has taken responsibility of the Fidayeen attack, which was carried to avenge the killing of their commander Noor Trali. It is being said that the terrorists went into a building and started firing from there.
