Singh said he has spoken to the chiefs of the Border Security Force and Central Reserve Police Force following the suicide attack near the Srinagar airport.

"I have spoken to the DG CRPF and DG BSF. It was a good operation that they have conducted," he told reporters.

The home minister said one assistant sub inspector of the BSF has martyred and two others were injured but they were out
of danger.

A group of militants on Tuesday launched a suicide attack on a BSF camp near the Srinagar airport, killing the ASI and leaving four security personnel injured.

Two militants were killed in the gun-battle that is raging near the airport, forcing brief suspension of air traffic and closure of schools in the vicinity.
