Gunmen attack Pathankot Air Force base in Punjab, 4 terrorists killed

Punjab, Jan 2: At least four terrorists have been killed in a gun battle with the armed forces at the Pathankot Air Force Station on the Jammu-Pathankot highway. The BSF and Punjab Police have thrown a cordon around the air base and four military choppers are hovering over it.

The counter assault is being mounted by black cat commandos of the National Security Guard. Army's Special Forces teams are giving direct support. IAF Garuds are being tasked for support operations.

According to initial reports, the incident is being linked to the missing car of a Punjab SP on Friday morning.

Meanwhile, authorities said the helicopters and other equipment in the Air base was safe. The attackers had also made calls to Pakistan, police said. The attack comes days after PM Narendra Modi's unscheduled visit to Pakistan.

It is the second big terror attack in Punjab within less than a year as last year three militants stormed a police station in Diana Nagar before being eliminated after 12 hour gun battle.
