Jammu and Kashmir: Two terrorists neutralised, siege continues on EDI building in Pampore

NEW DELHI(ANI): The massive siege on the Entrepreneurship Development Institute (EDI) building in Pampore, Jammu and Kashmir continued for the third day on Wednesday as security forces neutralised two terrorists and continued operations to flush out the remaining holed up terrorists.

Around three terrorists have been holed up inside the EDI building and counter operations have been underway for over 48 hours now to neutralise them.

The government building now lies in an almost destroyed form as it is peppered with bullets and heavy gunfire. Several floors in the multi-storeyed building now lie damaged following several explosions.

The terrorists who had entered the EDI complexes in the wee hours on Monday had fired upon the security forces triggering an encounter.

According to reports, the terrorists arrived at the EDI complex from the rear using a boat on the Jhelum.

An army jawan and a policeman were injured in the operation. Security forces used mortar shells, light machine guns and other small arms to flush out the terrorists but so far have only neutralised one.

This is the second time this year that the EDI complex has come under fire, as in February, terrorists had taken shelter in the main building after attacking a CRPF convoy on the highway at Pampore.
