Pathankot attack:Operations still underway, 2 terrorists still holed up: IAF



Pathankot (Punjab): In a press conference held on the recent terror attack on Punjab’s Pathankot IAF base, Air Commodore J S Dhamoon (R) today stated that Operations are continuing at the Indian Air Force base at Pathankot town in Punjab to kill two remaining terrorists.

“So far we have eliminated four terrorists. Operations to eliminate two more are in the final stages,” the officer told the media at the IAF base here.

He said the terrorists were holed up in a building in the complex.

All assets, structures and families residing in the IAF base were secure and there was no collateral damage, he added.

An earlier report said sounds of occasional firing could be heard from inside the base as search and combing operations by security forces continued, nearly 55 hours after terrorists launched a fidayeen attack on the frontline defence facility.

Four terrorists were killed by security forces on Saturday after a 15-hour gunfight. Seven security personnel, including a National Security Guard officer, one IAF Garuda commando and five Defence Services Corps (DSC) personnel were also killed in the counter-offensive.

Public interest litigation has been filed in the Supreme Court in the case of encounter of gangster Vikas Dubey. The petition calls for an investigation into the role of the UP police.

However, the petition was filed in the court late Thursday night, in which it was feared that the encounter of Vikas Dubey was done.

Ghanshyam Upadhyay, counsel for the petitioner, said that he would demand a hearing today. The petition filed in the Supreme Court sought to protect Vikas from the encounter.

Apart from this, there has also been a demand to register an FIR in the case of demolition of Vikas’s house, mall and hand over the investigation to the CBI.

The petition said that it appears from the media report that Vikas Dubey himself informed the guards at the Mahakal temple. He himself arrested the Madhya Pradesh police so that he could avoid the encounter.
