Baramulla attack: Rajnath speaks to NSA; Parrikar chairs security meet with Army, Air Force & Navy Chiefs

Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar on Monday chaired a high level security meeting with Army Chief Dalbir Singh, Air Force Chief Arup Raha and Navy Chief Sunil Lanba to discuss the security situation in wake of the Baramulla attack that killed one Border Security Force (BSF) soldier and injured another.

Earlier, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh discussed and reviewed the security situation with National Security Advisor (NSA) Ajit Doval. Singh also offered condolences to the jawan who was killed in the attack that started late last night.

The Home Minister had spoken to Director General, BSF, KK Sharma and asked him to provide best medical facilities to the injured jawan.

At least two terrorists and a BSF personnel were killed while one BSF jawan was injured when militants attacked two adjoining camps of Army and the paramilitary force at Baramulla.

The heavily-armed terrorists attacked the two camps belonging to Rashtriya Rifles and Border Security Force late last night, leading to a fierce gun-battle with the security forces.

Following the firefight, two terrorists were killed by the forces while one BSF personnel, who was hit by bullets, succumbed to his injuries later, a Home Ministry spokesperson said in New Delhi.
