Terror In India: Three Terrorists Killed After Murdering Six People

From the Hindustan Times:
Three terrorists were shot dead 11 hours after they stormed a police station in Punjab's Gurdaspur district and fought an intense gunbattle with security forces on Monday. Police personnel present at the spot said firing from the building the attackers were holed up in had stopped.

Six people, including a senior police officer, two home guards personnel and three civilians, were killed in the attack. Police officials said that exact details of the number of terrorists killed would emerge only after the combing operation by the Punjab Police and other security agencies ended.

India tightened security on its border with Pakistan after the attack. Punjab police's superintendent of police (detective) Baljeet Singh died in the gunbattle with the terrorists.

Armed police exchanged fire with the gunmen, who were holed up in the police station after the assault began at about 5.30am. Around seven sharpshooters were deployed in an armoured vehicle to take out the terrorists.

Gunshots were heard as security forces surrounded the building in the town of Dinanagar, about 15 km from the international border. Soldiers were also deployed, at least one armed with a shoulder-mounted rocket launcher. Punjab Police personnel said they heard the terrorists shout ‘Allah hu Akbar’ — Arabic for ‘God is great’.

Senior police officers, including Punjab Director General of Police (DGP) Sumedh Singh Saini, went inside the besieged police station complex once the state's police's special forces gave the signal that the terrorists had been neutralised.

Jitendra Singh, a junior minister in Prime Minister Narendra Modi's office, said he did not rule out Pakistan's involvement. "There have been earlier also reports of Pakistan infiltration and cross-border mischief in this area," said Singh, whose constituency in the Jammu region borders Gurdaspur.
