Two children were also killed on Monday during an exchange of gunfire between Indian and Pakistani troops, Indian authorities said.

"One BSF personnel has been killed so far and three are injured". Rebel groups have been fighting since 1989 for Kashmir to be united either under Pakistani rule or as an independent country. "Morning flights were cancelled, However, Air Asia flight from Delhi landed at the airport at 10 am". Roads leading to the airport, which were sealed off earlier, have also reopened.

More than 70,000 people have reportedly been killed in the conflict since 1989.

Officials said the militants fired indiscriminately and threw grenades at security pickets before entering the BSF camp when it was still dark and the airport was yet to open for the day's operations.

But fire between government forces and a lone surviving suspected militant continued inside the base which shares a common compound wall with the airport, Vaid said.

Police sources told news agency CNS that militants targeted the administrative block of the BSF camp.

Reports said the army used helicopters in the area to take on militants.

The Union home ministry said in a statement, "A group of 2-3 militants carried out an attack at the BSF camp of the 182 battalion BSF headquarters near Srinagar airport of Hamaama district, Budgam".

Khan, who heads the police force in the Kashmir Valley, denied that there had been a security breach that led to the attack. Two other BSF personnel and a policeman were also injured in the ongoing operation. However, the name of the highly fortified Srinagar airport did not come up during the investigation.

"Security forces responded promptly to Srinagar Terror Attack & ensured that there is no collateral damage to civilians", said MoS PMO Jitendra Singh.

"I have spoken to the DG, CRPF, and DG, BSF".
