Barricades have been put and a search is on to nab the miscreants, he said.

Six terrorists, suspected to belong to the Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Muhammed outfit, had attacked the air force base on 2 January. The strike had left seven security personnel dead with all six terrorists, too, being killed.

The terrorists had hijacked the vehicle of Punjab Police SP Salwinder Singh as they headed to the air force base.
